Dr. Wendy Burke publishes book on representation of WWII and occupation in Dutch Film

Dr. Wendy Burke publishes book on representation of WWII and occupation in Dutch Film
Description
Dr Wendy Burke recently published 'Images of Occupation in Dutch Film: Memory, Myth, and the Cultural Legacy of War' with Amsterdam University Press. This book is the first to explore depictions of the German occupation of Netherlands during World War II in films made between 1962 and 1986. Dr Burke shows that as Dutch public opinion towards the war altered over the post-war decades, the historical trajectory of Dutch recovery and reconstruction-political, economic, and, most complicated of all, psychological-came to be revealed, often unconsciously, in the films of the period. The book is based on research she did as a PhD student in CMCI under the supervision of Professor Richard Howells.
