In conjunction with Exeter University and Professor Ashley Jackson, the Teaching and Learning War Research Networkwill be holding their second annual workshop: 'Education and Modern Conflict in an International Comparative Perspective'

The event will consist of a day-long workshop, followed by an evening roundtable discussion.

The Teaching and Learning War research network brings together EU and international researchers and stakeholders, from a range of academic disciplines and professional backgrounds, to explore young people’s engagement with and receptivity to the cultural memory messages of the two world wars from an international comparative perspective. At the centenary of the First World War in the UK, Australia, Canada, and New Zealand young people find themselves front and centre of both state-sponsored and community-level commemorations. As the two world wars fade from living memory, young people across the Commonwealth have been singled out as those who will be carrying the memory of the war forward. Early indications suggest similar emphasis will be placed on young people in the 80th and 90th anniversaries of the Second World War.
