WHAM (War History Heritage Art and Memory) Research Network
WHAM is an international research network and community developed to facilitate multidisciplinary "dialogue" on war and peace at the intersection of history, heritage, art, and memory.
The other Myriad Faces organising partners are members of WHAM or are represented on the WHAM Board. Leading war and military museums are also WHAM members and speakers from some of these institutions will be represented at Myriad Faces.
