Travers, Daniel (2009) Collective Expressions Of Memory In The Isle Of Man. In: University of Huddersfield Research Festival, 23rd March - 2nd April 2009, University of Huddersfield. (Unpublished)

Much has been written about how Great
Britain remembers the events of World War
Two. The prevailing tendency within British
society is to focus on the positive aspects of
the War to see the entire war as ‘Britain’s
finest hour’ This often minimizes
controversial aspects of the conflict, and
the diversity of experience across the rest
of the British Isles, in order to reinforce
notions of British unity. This has been
described by historians as the ‘Churchill
paradigm’, which manifests itself not only in
mental memory, but in collective
expressions of a society’s identity.
