This is a chance to explore stories of people who are often overlooked – and who some would rather forget. We will explore opposition and resistance to World War One, from conscientious objectors who refused to fight to women peace activists who held an international peace congress in the Netherlands, from religious groups that split over the war to soldiers who mutinied. We will focus on Britain, although international comparisons and influences will also be mentioned. We will look at primary sources such as the letters and diaries of those involved, asking what motivated them and what they achieved. This course is open to you whatever your knowledge of World War One and whatever your views on issues of war and peace.
