The Representation of War in the North East c. 1856-1910

Year started


Project outline

My research looks at how three clusters of conflicts in the second half of the nineteenth century were represented to the domestic audience in the north east of England.

It focuses on two aspects of how wars were depicted: through a range of commercial activities during and immediately after wartime and the subsequent memorialisation by civic authorities and organisations.

The study examines the political, social and cultural motivations for the depiction of wars and how far regional representation matched or was steered by the attitudes of national and local elites.
