Beyond Gallipoli

New Perspectives on Anzac

Edited by: Raelene Frances, Bruce Scates

Much of the scholarship on the Great War, and especially the Dardanelles/Canakkale campaign, has been viewed through a narrow national prism and focused exclusively on military aspects of the engagement. This new collection of essays offers fresh perspectives from countries on both sides of the trenches of Gallipoli. Examined here are intersections of art and memory and the role that material culture and museums play in the representation and commemoration of war. The ideas and writing draw on fiction, poetry and diaries, as well as new digital media, which together frame the memory of war. Our ongoing encounter with Gallipoli's much-contested landscape takes on new hues and reveals untold stories. Beyond Gallipoli takes an innovative approach to the varied and controversial cultural legacies of an event which continues to shape the identity of Australia, New Zealand and Turkey. Contributors include Jessie Birkett-Rees, Frank Bongiorno, Kevin Fewster, Raelene Frances, Bill Gammage, Janda Gooding, Paul Gough, A. Candan Kirisci, Raynald Harvey Lemelin, Jenny MacLeod, Sharon Mascall-Dare, Jock Phillips, Peter Pierce, Robin Prior, Matthew Ricketson, Bruce Scates and Tom Sear.
