World War 1: Trauma and Memory


Word War 1: Trauma and Memory: The Open University [Three Weeks]

Fig.1. Though I’ve visited many sites of the First World War, this rather poignant stone I came across struck me as the most touching. Though broken we strain to comprehend the scale and nature of national and personal loss. 

100% Coming out of the MA in British Military History in September with 60 Credits and a Postgraduate Certificate from the University of Birmingham indicates a desire to understand this era deeper. From the Open University and an historian, Dr Annika Mombauer whose work I greatly admire made this a special, engaging and informed course.

The resources available is overwhelming: catalogues of photographs and archive film bring the First World War home.
