On November 11 (Remembrance Day) you will be required to attend cenotaph ceremonies either here in Victoria or elsewhere. You will keep a journal of the day, prostate including your thoughts about the ceremonies, how World War I is represented now, and how it relates to the reading we have been doing. I will be looking for you to connect your thoughts and the events that spur them to the material we’ve read and discussed in class. A certain degree of introspection here is expected, but these need not by any means be confessional. What I’m looking for rather is a capacity to link the narratives – and their specific representational strategies – with the rhetoric by which the events of the wars are commemorated today.
