Description

This paper traces the ways that Australia has constructed not only their own national identity from the legacy of the Battle of Gallipoli, but how they have also built a transnational collective memory with Turkey through various joint commemorations. Specifically, the Gallipoli Dawn Service on Anzac Day, which serves as a yearly reminder of the relationship between these nations. From the first commemoration services in Australia in 1916 to the centennial in 2015, Australia has grown the size and scope of their commemorations of the Battle of Gallipoli to the point that it is now a shared experience with Turkey.
