  • 1. HOME FRONTS: GENDER, WAR AND CONFLICT Women’s History Network Annual Conference 5-7 September 2014 at the University of Worcester The term Home Front was initially used during the First World War, and this conference is intended to coincide with the commemorations marking the centenary of the beginning of the Frist World War. Drawing upon the perspectives of women’s and gender history discussion will explore practical and emotional survival on the Home Front during war and conflict; including for example: food, domesticity, marriage, working lives, the treatment of outsiders, leisure, entertainment and the representation and remembrance of the Home Front. The conference aims to stimulate debate about not only the British Home Front but also a range of other Home Fronts and conflicts, across diverse historical periods and geographical areas.
