The Long Tail of War Symposium
Remembrance Day marks the end of First World War hostilities, but did the war truly end on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918?
As part of the Q ANZAC 100: Memories for a New Generation program, The Long Tail of War Symposium will explore the aftermath of war and the stories of what happened to the soldiers and nurses who returned home.
The two-day symposium will feature individual presentations and panel discussions from historians, writers, journalists and curators. They will cover themes of returning home, health wellbeing, remembrance, economic and social impact, and the ripple effect.
Join us for this fascinating symposium that will reveal the stories of what happened next as we commemorate the centenary anniversary of the Armistice.
Q ANZAC 100: Memories for a New Generation is a joint initiative between the Queensland Government and the Anzac Centenary Public Fund. Other events in the program include the Picnic for Peace, and the Black Diggers Film Screening.
