Keynote speakers include Jay Winter, JoAnn McGregor, Zvi Bekerman and Michalinos Zembylas and a keynote panel on teaching the Holocaust featuring Eckhart Fuchs, Simone Schweber, Alice Pettigrew and Stuart Foster.

Your registration fee includes a private tour of the new First World War galleries at the Imperial War Museum and the choice of optional local history walking tours. Delegates are invited to view a specially curated exhibition at IOE entitled  ‘Illuminations: Perspectives on war and peace in the archives’.
