War Heritage: New Podcast about War and Culture, with UCL History's Dr Mark Frost

26 May 2022

Join UCL History's Mark Frost alongside Tim Winter, Toyah Horman, Daniel Schumacher and Edward Vickers for a series of discussions about the challenges of safeguarding heritage in the aftermath of conflict and mass violence.

War Heritage

The podcast has been created by the team at The War Memoryscapes in Asia Project (WARMAP), of which Dr Mark Frost is a founding member. WARMAP brings together scholars from various disciplines and universities across the globe who all share an interest in the study of war remembrance in Asia in its various forms.

The podcast focuses on the popular histories of war and conflict in the Southeast Asian region, using the framework of intangible cultural heritage. Funded by UNESCO Jakarta, the ten part series examines a variety of themes and features interviews with academics, local community members, curators and heritage linked NGO’s. In episode 7, Mark examines the intangible heritage surrounding the ghosts of victims of mass violence, and in episode 10 he explores the impact of the Vietnam War on popular music across the region.
