TITANIC: Memorialization and Memory
This seminar looks at the memorialization of probably the most famous merchant-ship loss, RMS Titanic. However, the research undertaken for the speaker’s PhD shows that differing groups were remembered at different times, some with public support, others only after private initiatives. This session highlights not just who we choose to remember but also how and when.
