Everyday Lives in War

The Everyday Lives in War centre is based at the University of Hertfordshire, in collaboration with the Universities of Essex, Northampton, Exeter, Lincoln and Central Lancashire. We are curious about the impact of war on everyday life between 1914 and 1918 and its longer-term effects. We’re already working actively with community groups and look forward to welcoming new partners across the UK. Whether you’re interested in supernatural beliefs, dairy farming, conscientious objectors, what people saw on stage or memories of childhood, we’re keen to work together on new sources and questions about these and other aspects of the FWW.
