Abstract/Artist Statement

The purpose of this research project is to explore how the memory of World War II has changed between the end of the war and now. Through a careful examination of media produced during this period, I will attempt to describe any shifts in the portrayal of the war. To further explore how the ways the war is remembered, I will administer a survey to two groups of the public, the first being college students and the second persons over 60 years old. From the responses, I will attempt to graph any statistical trends that arise. The results of my research will be compiled in a paper, and will be presented in poster form at the PURCC presentation.
