Ellen Heaton Annual Lecture 2018

Swarthmore Education Centre presents Ellen Heaton’s annual lecture 2018 with guest speaker Cyril Pearce.

Cyril Pearce ( Hon research fellow, school of history, University of Leeds) presents the lecture ‘ Heroes of a different kind? Commemorating Britain’s 1914 – 1918 war resisters.

As the First World War centenary commemorations draw to a close and we remember the men and women who died, this lecture will suggest that it is also important that we remember the experiences of a very different group of people. More than 20,000 young men refused to take up arms and were supported by as many women and older men. The question is ‘How should they be remembered?’

The lecture will take place on Thursday, November 15th at 7pm. This is a free event but you most register a free ticket below to ensure entry, alternatively please send your name and e-mail to events@swarthmore.org.uk
