Voices of the Home Front at The National Archives

programme-dates

For the past three days I’ve been at The National Archives at Kew with my colleagues from the Everyday Lives in War centre. In conjunction with the Archives, we organised Voices of the Home Fronts, a three day conference exploring aspects of the home fronts during and after the First World War.

At the end of each day, I wrote a blog for the conference website summarising the sessions I attended. You can read them here: Day One, Day Two, Day Three.

The conference was also live-tweeted. Follow the conversation using the hashtag #HomeFrontVoices.
