Whose Memories? What Nation? A review of the British Museum exhibition, by Ellie Roberts

My review of the Memories of a Nation exhibition at the British Museum.

School of Languages and Cultures Postgrads

I had high hopes for the Germany: Memories of a Nation exhibition at the British Museum. My PhD focuses on German nationalism and the debates on how to foster German national unity in the 1840s, leading up to the March Revolution of 1848. I was interested, even excited to see how the British Museum would construct an exhibition around ideas of memory and national identity, starting at the Holy Roman Empire and ending in the present day.
