Teaching the History of Voluntary Action: National, International and Transnational Perspectives
Saturday 28th February 2015
Queen Mary University of London, 10am-4.30pm
Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, who met at The Hague in April 1915
In September 2013, a group of historians with common interests in voluntary action history came together at a one-day workshop hosted by the University of Liverpool to discuss best practice in the teaching of this still emerging field, primarily from the perspective of domestic British history in the modern period.
This follow-up event aims to widen the scope to encompass comparative and transnational perspectives and to broaden the network of practitioners beyond those present at this initial event. It will include sessions on the pedagogical challenges of teaching voluntary action history, making use of innovative teaching tools and digital resources, and sharing best practice and collaboration.
A keynote will be given by Kevin O’Sullivan (NUI Galway) and other confirmed participants include Anna Bocking-Welch(Liverpool), Kate Bradley (Kent), George Gosling (Warwick), Daniel Laqua (Northumbria) and Bridget Lockyer (York).
