The four-year centenary of the First World War is an unprecedented period of global commemoration. My own research in this area is empirically based on Anzac commemoration at Australian memorial sites, exploring how these events maintain narratives of Australian national identity and the social implications of this, and is conceptually linked to my work on atmospheres. I am also editing a series of books that adopt a comparative overview on how the war is remembered around the world. Under the banner of the International Research Network on War Commemoration (IRNWC), my work in this area benefits from close collaboration with colleagues Ben Wellings (Monash University), Matthew Graves (Aix-Marseille Universite) and Andrew Mycock (University of Huddersfield). Other research in this area has focused on memorials in capital cities, via a project I contributed to as a Research Fellow at the School of Architecture and Design at RMIT, 2013-2015.
