Over the course of two days a combination of internationally acclaimed scholars, early career and postgraduate researchers at the cutting edge of academic scholarship, representatives of heritage agencies, museums, and community groups, and those working across the breadth of First World War-related subjects will come together to celebrate the first one hundred years of First World War history, to discuss the latest work in the field, and to consider the future of the subject within the poignant setting of the former Craiglockhart War Hospital.
The conference programme, which can be viewed in full by clicking this link, comprises academic panels on a wide variety of subjects, a keynote paper by Dr Jane Potter (Oxford Brookes University), a special consideration of work undertaken with young people during the centenary, a round table discussion featuring representatives from academia, the museum sector, and the battlefield tourism industry, and a free workshop on the creation of digital history projects. Those arriving on Wednesday evening are also cordially invited to join us at a special public lecture by Dr Nigel Hunt (University of Nottingham).
