The obligation to remember war is central within New Zealand’s remembrance tradition. However, in remembering we might also remember how we have remembered. Stout Research Centre scholar Steven Loveridge will consider the changing perception of the Great War over the last century using the events of Passchendaele as a case study.

About the speaker:
Steven Loveridge works from the Stout Research Centre for New Zealand Studies and has studied, written and taught on numerous aspects of the Great War. His first book Calls to Arms (VUP, 2014) examined the social and cultural dynamics of New Zealand’s wartime commitment.

More recently, he was the editor and a contributor for New Zealand Society at War, 1914–1918 (VUP, 2016), an edited collection featuring essays by leading scholars on how elements of New Zealand society experienced and responded to the war.
