- Legacies of War
The Legacies of War Centenary project is run by colleagues at the University of Leeds who have research interests in different aspects of the First World War, and is partnered with Gateways to the First World War. The 2014-18 centenary of what was referred to at the time as the ‘Great War’ is a time for reflection and debate about what happened during the war and what its profound and long-term consequences were. Members of the Legacies of War project are participating in and helping to coordinate a series of events and activities that are taking place across Leeds in 2014-18 in theatres, cinemas, museums, galleries and at the University. These events commemorate and explore different histories of the First World War, and examine its multiple historical, cultural and social legacies. There is a exciting and varied programme of events that responds to widespread public interest in this crucial period of our history.
