CfP: Voices of the Home Fronts

The National Archives, the ‘Gateways to the First World War’ and the ‘Everyday Lives in War’ Engagement Centres are hosting a two-day conference on 19 and 20 October 2018 at The National Archives, Kew which will bring together independent researchers, community groups, and academics to discuss the impact of the Armistice as we approach the centenary of the end of First World War.

We are seeking submissions which address First World War Home Front research that has been conducted over the centenary period and invite proposals for conference papers, panels, and workshops on topics which may include, but are not limited to:

·       Demobilisation, homecomings, the ‘return to normality’
·       New nations and everyday identities
·       Veteran politics, charities, sports, clubs and entertainment
·       Post war education and work – industrial relations, reconstruction, local and regional economies
·       Environment
·       Family and childhood
·       Local party politics
·       Faith and belief
·       Disability

We particularly encourage submissions from independent researchers, institutions, and community groups.

Submissions should be received by Monday 30 April 2018.
