The long tail of war symposium: day 1

The long tail of war symposium

Remembrance Day marks the end of First World War hostilities, but did the war truly end on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918?

As part of the Q ANZAC 100: Memories for a New Generation program, The Long Tail of War Symposium will explore the aftermath of war and the stories of what happened to the soldiers and nurses who returned home.

The two-day symposium will feature individual presentations and panel discussions from historians, writers, journalists and curators covering themes on returning home; health wellbeing and medical; remembrance; economic and social impact and the ripple effect.

Join us for this fascinating symposium that will reveal the stories of what happened next as we commemorate the centenary anniversary of the Armistice.

Part of Q ANZAC 100: Memories for a New Generation, a joint initiative between the Queensland Government and the Anzac Centenary Public Fund.
