In 2014 the UK Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) in collaboration with the Heritage Lottery Fund established five First World War Engagement Centres as part of the commemoration of the War’s centenary. Each Centre was a consortium of universities organised around research knowledge and expertise. The brief for each Centre was the same: to work with community groups in the co-production and co-design of research projects which focused on the legacy of the War. This presentation will document the work of the Voices of War and Peace Engagement Centre based in Birmingham and explore the extent to which the objective set by the AHRC has been realised.
The lecture by Professor Ian Grosvenor will take place on
