Don’t mention the war? History, mythology and a new construction of British identity

Sheffield Salon event on World War II and national identity:

In the company of our panel of speakers, all recognised authorities in their field (http://www.sheffieldsalon.org.uk/2012/11/dont-mention-the-war/), this Salon hopes to examine the important contemporary issues of national identity that now rest on the idea of the ‘People’s War’. Join us in a wide-ranging conversation that hopes to explore our contemporary preoccupation with the Second World War and what this might mean in a society searching for a coherent national identity.
