Curating and Re-Curating The American Wars in Vietnam and Iraq

This talk will share selected areas of the newly finished manuscript, Curating and Re-Curating the American Wars in Vietnam and Iraq, which will be published in 2019 by Oxford University Press. The lecture poses questions of who has authoritative war knowledge, where that knowledge is displayed, how it appears and what political issues emerge around war displays. Professor Sylvester will consider curatorial/re-curatorial war expertise emanating from public displays of war objects in Australia, the US and Vietnam that relate to the two wars.
