Learning, Literature and Remembrance in English Classrooms

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This article reflects on the findings for English Literature of an AHRC-funded project, The First World War in the Classroom: Teaching and the Construction of Cultural Memory", and the role of English teaching in students' understanding of the war and its history. It questions particularly the oft-repeated assumption that English teachers are responsible for 'mis-teaching' the First World War by considering subject remit and the nature of war writing as literature rather than as historical documents.
