About the workshop:
In the twenty-first century both the young and the old make
pilgrimages to battlefield sites around the globe. These are
highly emotional places and spaces in which emotion plays a
central part, and which have a long tradition in history. The
Battlefield monuments erected to seventeenth-century
conflicts continue to prompt intense emotional responses
today. This roundtable event explores how the emotions, as
they were understood in the seventeenth century, as well as
how they are perceived today, shapes national histories in the
21st century. Secondary History Teachers from across
Queensland are invited to join us for two lively papers from
international experts in the field, culminating in an open
discussion about practical ways to demonstrate how this
knowledge about emotions and battlefield memorials is
relevant to students today.

CPD certification of participation will be provided to all attendees.

Please join the speakers for a reception following the workshop.
