Falklands/Malvinas - experiencing, remembering, recording the Falklands/Malvinas war

The legacies of this short war in the South Atlantic live on. This workshop provides space for British and Argentine veterans and researchers to reflect on how the Falklands/Malvinas war was experienced, remembered and recorded. Many of the participants fought in the war. Others have personal connections to it. The workshop will be a chance to come together, a unique exploration of the ongoing aftermaths of this conflict.
