Public Engagement

CPG PHOTOGRAPHY. The Great War Debate at Rushcliffe School, Nottingham, 14.11.2018

I have a lot of experience in participating in public engagement events and I am happy to discuss possible public engagement collaboration on any aspect of the First World War. Please get in touch via the contact page.

In 2019 I co-curated along with Dr Katherine Ebury (Sheffield) and Amnesty International, a special film series (of 4 films) titled ‘Taking Lives: Art, Activism and the Death Penalty on Screen’ at Showroom Cinema, Sheffield. I introduced and led a discussion on the film La Veuve de Saint-Pierre.

In November 2018 I was invited to be a panellist for The Great War Debate organised by the Department of Education at Nottingham. The panel was chaired by Mark Urban (BBC Newsnight) and the theme of the panel was ‘First World War medicine, surgery and treatment’. 

In 2017 I was invited to delivered a public lecture at Nottingham Deaf Society by the Nottingham Women’s History Group. My lecture was attended by over thirty people—members of both the societies and local residents, and was simultaneously translated into BSL. The title of my talk was “Healing and Containment as Service: Nurses of the First World War at Home and Abroad”.

Also in 2017, I podcasted my research for ‘Modernist Podcast’. It was part of episode 9, ‘Modernism, Medicine and the Body’:

 In 2016 I set up a display on First World War from the private archives of Renishaw Hall as part of Local Heritage Festival at Woodland Discovery Centre in Sheffield, and interacted with local residents about the war and the Sitwell family throughout the day.
