Online Lecture Series: Suffolk At War, Online Pilot (free of charge)

Join us for a special online pilot event focusing on Suffolk at War in the twentieth century. Led by Dr John Greenacre this event will summarise the themes of our eight-part Suffolk At War Online Lecture Series which starts in September. Please find information about the lecture series below:

The military histories of the major global conflicts of the ‘short twentieth century’ are well documented at the British national level. But the military contribution to the First World War, Second World War and the Cold War also had significant localised effects across the United Kingdom, including in Suffolk. This lecture series examines how the geography, topography, population, industry and socio-economic factors influenced and contributed to Suffolk’s impact on and experience of conflict during the twentieth century. The lecture series will also consider the individual’s experience of conflict, whether servicemen from Suffolk fighting overseas or civilians on the home front. Furthermore, we will attempt to compare and connect the national and international experience of warfare with the local experience by examining the evolving relationship between the military, state and society during the twentieth century in the county of Suffolk.

Please note that this event will be live streamed and recorded. Live stream ticket holders will have the opportunity to ask questions in advance.
