Season 2 of the RCRM Speakers Series will explore various aspects of loss in the context of military conflict. When this topic attracts scholarly attention, the unthinkable is often revealed. Complex facets of the dynamic between mourning and commemoration, deprivation and rejection or disposal of war by-products surface. All of it leaves undeniable traces on the communities found in the path of the clash.
The series will run in two parts: from Jan to June and after a two-months summer break, from Sept to November 2021. Each talk will be premiered on the museum YouTube channel, followed by a podcast episode release 3 weeks after. The Episode 1 Podcast will be released on 18 Feb 2021 at 6pm.
