In 2014 the world marks the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of the First World War. The four years of the war between 1914 and 1918 remain one of the most significant periods in recent British history, affecting almost everyone in the UK and in all the countries involved. At its end a new world order had emerged and we are still understanding and absorbing the implications of the momentous changes the War brought about.
The centenary of the First World War in 2014 represents therefore a significant act of commemoration both in the UK and internationally. The Imperial War Museum is leading activities in this area and the AHRC, in partnership with IWM, the Heritage Lottery Fund, the BBC and other organisations, is working to ensure that arts and humanities research plays a central role in the commemoration, bringing new perspectives and interpretations to bear on our understanding of the War and its legacy, sparking contemporary resonances and inspiring public interest.
The AHRC has also launched a blog, Beyond the Trenches, reflecting on researching the First World War.
The AHRC is funding several different WWI project read more about the projects and how you can get involved underneath.
