Conference-debate – Villes en guerre 1914-1918. Wallonia and Brussels
With B. Benvindo, M. Bost, A. Colignon and C. Kesteloot Chaired by Anne Roekens
On Friday 20 January 2017 in our conference room, Anne Roekens (U Namur) will invite the four authors of the volumes “Bruxelles, ville occupée 1914-1918” and “La Wallonie dans la Grande Guerre”, to talk about their work and to reflect on the challenge of writing such a “visual history”. A selection of photographs from both publications will be presented and analyzed in greater detail, in order to discuss what such pictures may reveal or obscure about the past.
