Segesser, Daniel Marc (13 January 2017). Gallipoli, a foundational myth. Turkey in the architecture of memory in Canberra (Submitted). In: International Exploratory Workshop: The Levant in the shadow of World War I: Unhealed wounds, perpetuated patterns. Zürich, Schweiz. 11.-13. Januar 2017.

The battle of Gallipoli as it is known in Europe and South Asia or the battle of Çannakkale as it is known in modern Turkey was a seminal battle for many nations, not because it was decisive for the course of the war, but because it played a central role in regard to memory of the First World War in many nations. Based on an analysis of records from the National Archives in Canberra, the Canberra Times and publications of the National Capital Planning Authority this contribution will analyse the role of the Gallipoli / Canakkale battle in Canberra’s City Planning and Architecture of Memory in the period between the formal founding of the city and its centenary in 2013
