Steering committee

  • Dr Nick Mansfield (University of Central Lancashire)
  • Dr Christopher Phillips (Leeds Trinity University)
  • Philippa Read (University of Leeds)
  • Dr David Swift (University of Central Lancashire)
  • Dr Oliver Wilkinson (University of Central Lancashire)

The steering committee has been drawn from among the members of a Postgraduate Research Network linked to IWM North, which acts as a meeting place for discussions and collaborative projects among postgraduates attached to universities in the north of England.


This network would not be possible without the generous support of our partners at the Arts & Humanities Research Council


Our 2016 conference was funded by the AHRC’s First World War Engagement Centres
