Communities of resistance - patterns of dissent in Britain during the First World War

Event location: WCML

Date: 30th Mar 2016

Event time: 14:00 to 15:00

Talk by Cyril Pearce.

Data gathered from a variety of sources can be used to create maps of Britain which identify places and communities in Britain where enthusiasm for the war was muted or non-existent. Searching these anti-war hot-spots exposes coalitions of resistance involving women as well as men, religious as well as political objectors which give the lie to the conventional notion that the war was universally popular.
