Gildersleeve, Jessica and Gehrmann, Richard (2017) Memory and the wars on terror. In: Memory and the wars on terror: Australian and British perspectives. Palgrave Macmillan Memory Studies. Palgrave Macmillan Ltd., Houndmills, United Kingdom, pp. 1-19. ISBN 978-3-319-56975-8

Abstract

An understanding of the Wars on Terror within their historical context, and alongside their historical precursors and chronological course is crucial for interpreting the processes and impacts on its memorialisation in Britain and Australia. Considering the processes of memory-making at work throughout the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, particularly in the context of war, trauma and violence, this chapter makes the case for examining September 11 and the Wars on Terror from an ‘outside’ perspective in order to show how they have become part of a globalised cultural memory.
