Event description

Description

In the years after the Great War, Australian memorials were often engraved with a simple request, ‘Let silent contemplation be your offering’. Today, remembrance is fuelled by a booming Anzac industry that spruiks everything from tourism to far-flung battlegrounds to mass-produced Anzac biscuits. Jo will speak about her new book Consuming Anzac which explores how the commercialisation of the Anzac legend shapes the way Australians remember war.
