Gateways to the First World War
Staff from the School of History are involved in a major project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). The Gateways to the First World War public engagement centre was launched in May 2014 with the aim of encouraging and supporting public interest in the centenary of the First World War through a range of events, activities, advice and expertise.
Led by the School of History's Professor Mark Connelly, Gateways to the First World War is a collaborative project involving leading First World War researchers Dr Brad Beaven (Portsmouth), Dr Helen Brooks (Kent), Professor Alison Fell (Leeds), Dr Emma Hanna (Greenwich), Dr Lucy Noakes (Brighton) and Dr Dan Todman (Queen Mary, London). The centre was launched in May 2014 and the team is working on a wide range of community activities commemorating the centenary across the UK.
