Compared to previous anniversaries of the Great War - notably the 50th and 75th anniversaries - the media context of the Centenary was quite new, marked by the emergence since the 2000s of social media and especially social networks online such as Twitter or Facebook. This seminar will present the results of research based on a corpus of more than 9 millions tweets related to the Great War or its Centenary collected from April 2014 to the end of November 2019 and will discuss how Twitter, and more generally social media, are reframing the ways in which we commemorate the past. Session chair: Tessa Hauswedell Speaker biography Frédéric Clavert (@inactinique; https://twitter.com/inactinique/), assistant professor at C2DH @C2DH_LU, initially specialised in the history of the economic and monetary organisation of the European continent in the 20th century. He then turned to digital history, looking in particular at artefacts of memories of the First World War and its centenary on social media. His next research project will focus on unsupervised online discussions among European citizens about the EU. Attend in-person or online This seminar is 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm, 7 January 2020 Online (live or afterwards) - see the seminar blog (http://ihrdighist.blogs.sas.ac.uk/) or YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLBI7fD7EQmu652Pr_oWEYw) for links In person - Room N304, Institute for Historical Research.
