2013 oct midland history forum conference (1)

  1. 1. HOW SHOULD WE REMEMBER WORLD WAR 1? School of Education, University of Birmingham, Edgbaston, Birmingham, B15 2TT How should we approach teaching World War I as its centenary approaches? What are its implications for the whole curriculum both in the classroom and beyond? Our next Forum will give the chance to consider the implications of these questions. We are delighted that we can draw upon a wide range of experts with Dr John Bourne leading a keynote presentation to enhance our understanding of the war and Kate Lindsey sharing major new web resources to enhance the scope and way in which you approach this subject. We are also fortunate to have workshop contributions from a wide range of experts who will share projects which they have developed which are associated with the conflict. We anticipate that our conference will provide you with a very strong basis for your work in the classroom.
