chicken-poster-2-revisedWelcome to the website of the Voices of the Home Fronts event and conference. This is a partnership between The National Archives and the five national World War One Engagement Centres funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

This fascinating event consists of three days of workshops, talks, and presentations exploring the histories of everyday lives during the First World War and its aftermath, through personal, local, national, and international experiences.

Voices of the Home Fronts is a great opportunity to hear about recent and ongoing research, inspire you to conduct new research and foster collaborations both nationally and internationally. Topics will include military tribunals, conscientious objection, prisoners of war, voluntary organisations, racial and ethnic experiences, life under bombardment, refugees, international home fronts, women’s employment, health, food, dissent, newspapers, literature, profiteering, advertising, fashion, family life and more

Sessions will be interspersed with special performances, exhibitions and screenings, as well as the opportunity to network and discover relevant museums and organisations.
