This summer school will explore several of these contradictions and omissions from the popular memory of Britain during the Second World War. It will also consider the implications of the popular memory of the war on more recent issues, notably the case of ‘Brexit’. With a heavy focus on primary sources, this course will provide a useful and fascinating stepping stone towards postgraduate study, enhancing your research skills, your abilities in oral and written communication, and encouraging you to consider the creation of popular memory in a more nuanced and in-depth manner.
