Main Resources

A call to attics, bottom drawers and such...

Do you have memorabilia from the First World War? Do you have a story to tell about a relative who lived through this historic event? If you do and you are willing for other people to see and to use for educational purposes, then we would like you to send us digital copies of them for inclusion in the Great War Archive.

This project has received additional funding via the JISC's Digitisation Programme to greatly expand the archive. The new project will run from 2007-2009. To find out more information please visit: http://www.ww1lit.com/

Project Information

* Project Steering Group * Project Reports
* The original full project proposal * The JISC Technology Applications Programme

Due to the success of the Isaac Rosenberg tutorial on the Web, funding was put forward by the JISC Technology Applications Programme (JTAP) to develop three more tutorials, again built around the idea of teaching WWI poetry. These tutorials each explore different methods of literary study and of delivery. The project also involved building up an archive of material relating to the War, which lecturers and students can use across the Web, creating their own tutorials or on-line essays. As with the Rosenberg project, this is a free, publicly available service. Funding was provided for two years, with Paul Groves as the Project Research Officer and Dr. Stuart Lee as the Project Manager.

Mailing List
