WW1: Changing Faces of Herosim

  • 9 — 28 March 2015

Starting on 9 March, World War One: Changing Faces of Heroism, is a free short course from the University of Leeds – in association with the BBC. It looks at the emergence of new kinds of heroes and heroines, such as ordinary ‘Tommies’ and front-line nurses, as well as alternative hero figures including anti-war campaigners.
The three week course explores art, literature, film and television, where people will learn about the portrayals of heroism before, during and since the war.
