This course aims to study Gallipoli as an event that transformed the commemorative landscape and practices not only in Australia, but also in Turkey. We will acknowledge the diversity of the responses to and changing understandings of Gallipoli, from the early days of the campaign till today, with a particular focus on the Turkish experiences. The students will gain familiarity and appreciation of various historiographical trends and social and cultural changes that inform contemporary debates about Gallipoli and war commemoration in general. The course is designed to build awareness of the transnational aspects of the remembrance of the campaign, drawing on mainly Turkish and Australian perspectives. There is both an emphasis on theoretical discussions about commemorative phenomena and a hands-on experience of attending, observing and creating commemorative activities through authentic assessments.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- reflect on commemorative places and practices about Gallipoli, drawing on personal experiences, observation and research;
- identify and interpret resources that pertain to the Gallipoli campaign, relating them to broader historical contexts;
- appraise specific examples of commemorations in relation to cultural, social and political forces that shape the remembrance of the campaign;
- apply theoretical and practical knowledge about public commemorations while designing or critically assessing original initiatives; and
- examine and compare different historiographical traditions and trends.
