Media Discourse of Commemoration - The Centenary of World War One in Europe
Palgrave MacMillan, 2021

Editors: Elisabeth Le (Modern Languages & Cultural Studies), Luciana Radut-Gaghi, Alida Maria Silletti, Hedwig Wagner

This book explores how First World War commemoration events are presented, reported and mediated on the websites of mainstream daily newspapers from seven European countries. The book is the result of a research group – DIREPA-EUROPE (Discours, représentations, passé de l’Europe), part of Lemel research network – characterized by a shared interest in media discourse and online newspapers. It presents a fluid analysis chain on the commemoration discourse generated by the WWI Armistice Centenary in 2018, and will be of interest not only to scholars of discourse and media studies, but also of European history, cultural memory, journalism and conflict studies.
