Your History

Posted on: August 15, 2014

PoppyThe LRC team has keenly been recording the latest programmes from the World War I season on BBC 2 over the past few weeks. These include:

The World’s War: Forgotten Soldiers of Empire

which explored the recruitment and deployment of soldiers from Africa, India and Asia by the British, French and Germans on the Western Front and throughout the empire.

Our Access to Higher Education Humanities and Social Science students examine the role of women in the First World in the context of the fight for women’s right to vote. BBC 2’s broadcast of Kate Adie’s Women of World War One focused on how the suffragettes gave up their struggle for votes to work for the war effort.

Our students also look at the Raj and slave trade as part of their history programme. The opening of the Black Cultural Archives in Brixton will be a great supplement to their studies. The current exhibition is Re-imagine: Black Women in Britain running until 30 November with free entry. Plus you can explore their catalogue of resources online.
