Educational Role of Memorial Museums in Critical Thinking and Learning about the Violent Past

Project description

The moral imperative of “Never again” has been extensively utilized in public discourse following numerous instances of violent conflicts and political violence in the 20th and 21st centuries. However, despite its frequent use, new forms of conflicts and violence continue to persist across the world. In contemporary times, museums and memorials have become key sites for institutionalizing the “never again” assertion within public spaces.

Tamara Banjeglav aims to explore how memorial museums teach about violence and how violence is represented in museum exhibitions.
