Centre for Hidden Histories

Lead Research Organisation: University of Nottingham
Department Name: Sch of Humanities

Abstract

In a British context, and with significant exceptions, WWI still focuses largely on the white British armed forces active on the Western Front. While it is possible to subject the events of 1914-18 to disinterested and objective historical inquiry, the commemorative landscapes and rituals created after 1918, and reaffirmed each year in the UK and on the Western Front, tend to prevent a broader understanding of WWI as a global conflict that has continuing relevance for all communities in an increasingly cosmopolitan British society. This includes those for whom the Western Front, and the conventional British narratives associated with it, have limited significance. Many Indians fought on the Western Front, but people from different parts of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire, including Ukraine, Russia, and Poland are likely to focus more strongly on the fallout from the collapse of the Russian Empire 1917-22, and the subsequent emergence of new nations in central and eastern Europe after 1918. People of the Balkan states may be more interested in the post-1912 wars which essentially led to Yugoslavia, the fall of the Habsburg monarchy and the emergence of a stronger Greece. Turkey's participation in WWI led to the destruction of the Ottoman Sultanate and the creation of the modern Republic of Turkey. The Irish have yet a further perspective on these years.

The centrality of WWI to British identity has been reaffirmed by the UK government's ambitious £60 million programme to mark the centenary in 2014-18. The explicit objective is to remind the next generation 'that the First World War is not ancient history but a shared history that unites our country'. What of the many communities which have settled in Britain during the 20th century? Are they (intentionally or unintentionally) excluded? Some families have lived in Britain for several generations but do not necessarily feel any sense of engagement with previous commemorative events.

The proposed Centre aims to idntify and facilitate imaginative democratic community action and engagement around the memories and narratives of the period 1914-18 within the diverse communities which make up contemporary British Society. Initially the Centre will take advantage of its location and work with three, large cosmopolitan cities in the English East Midlands region: Nottingham, Leicester and Derby. These three cities have distinctive but comparable industrial heritages, and through the 20th Century experienced sustained immigration from all parts of Europe, the Commonwealth and elsewhere. From this foundation, and utilizing community networks, we aim to expand our community partnerships to achieve a national reach.

The Centre will be led by a cross-disciplinary network of academics from across the Arts and Humanities, the Social Sciences and the Information Technologies. The University of Nottingham and its partners in the Centre have a strong track record of working with community groups and our key mechanisms of engagement will include a comprehensive programme of community-focused events (themed roadshows, research surgeries, talks and training) co-ordinated by an experienced Community Liaison officer. Access to research expertise will be facilitated by two funding schemes: (i) a Community Challenge Fund to support community groups to gain access to training, facilities and expertise to assist the development of community-led programmes and support the development of bids to the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) schemes; and (ii) a Research Development Fund, aimed at extending the potential of a community-led HLF project or funding follow-up activities to further develop a completed HLF project. Mechanisms of engagement through events, and the funding schemes, will encourage fresh approaches to collaborations through the involvement of community theatre practitioners, community film makers and the novel use of technology through the UoN's digital research centres (e.g. Horizon).

Planned Impact

Our proposal is for a 'Centre for Hidden Histories of the First World War' that will highlight the impact and subsequent legacies of the war on diverse communities within Britain whilst critically re-assessing their processes of collective remembrance and commemoration. Our primary aim is to develop new and imaginative ways of remembering and commemorating the WWI period, which are genuinely inclusive and reflect the complex and varied nature of British society in the 21st century. Drawing on the opportunities presented by the centenary of WWI, we will initiate new forms of community action and engagement around the memories and narratives of this period. The programme will focus initially on Nottingham, Leicester and Derby, the three large, ethnically mixed, cosmopolitan industrial and manufacturing centres of the English East Midlands. From these cities we will seek to expand the programme activities in conjunction with local community groups, who will be invited to co-design and co-produce the research, into a wider national programme.

As a community-focused project, the proposed programme is inherently geared towards knowledge exchange and impact. The Centre aims to enable community groups, with or without prior experience of research, to have greater engagement with academics. The three year programme is designed to deliver a direct and immediate impact upon the individuals within community groups and should enable them to:

- formulate research questions, develop methodologies and access sources more easily
- learn how to access research expertise and facilities more effectively
- develop skills in historical research and be able to conduct research across a broad spectrum of topics
- learn innovative research techniques such as crowd sourcing (with input from Computer Sciences)
- gain skills in recording data appropriately, presenting findings and creating research resources
- hone experience in initiating, organising and delivering community projects

In addition to community groups the programme offers an opportunity to have a positive impact on non-university organisations such as the Heritage Lottery Fund, museums, libraries and archives through the development of new links to communities (and potentially new audiences and users), new knowledge and understanding of the holdings and sites cared for by these organisations and an increased capacity in mobilising community groups and academics to participate in future collaborative research projects.

The programme will also impact upon how schools and teachers approach the teaching of history relating to the contested histories of different community groups, cultural memory and heritage.

Another group of more indirect beneficiaries are respondents drawn into community research projects whose testimonies are solicited as part of oral history data gathered by the researcher group: respondents, often a generation older than those interviewing them, are generally glad to have their knowledge, opinions and memories taken seriously and captured as part of a research process.

The overall mission is to recuperate, package and disseminate under-researched evidence of participation in the war effort and its aftermaths by British Empire people of non-European origin. An objective is therefore to uncover a historical that will be appreciated and sustained by Britain's diverse communities and future generations - including what happened to empire people of non-European origin immediately after the war. A further objective is, through dissemination, to share heritage stories of contributions made as a legacy by non-European origin empire people to the war effort. This project will result in an articulate and well researched publication complete with case studies, background historical information, explanatory context, interpretative analysis, photographs/images/pictures."

Furthermore, they were engaged in the production of lasting learning materials on this subject. In addition to the focus of examination mentioned above, the students were guided in questioning differences and similarities between the period of the First World War and today when it comes to the position and treatment of foreigners such as immigrants, refugees and asylum seekers, and the development and maintenance of British values in times of conflict, terrorist attack and war. This assisted them in broadening and deepening their historical and social knowledge and developing and honing their research and dissemination skills, and it helped them and their fellow students to identify with historical personalities and events in order to gain a greater understanding of past and present. Thus, the project brought to life a hidden history of integration and segregation, and made it relevant for young contemporary audiences through involvement, collaboration and dissemination, leaving a legacy in terms of experiences and learning materials that can be applied in future education and training."

Impact This CHH sponsored collaboration between Dr Tim Grady (University of Chester) and Handforth Parish Council has unearthed new information on the history of WWI internment in three areas. First, it has thrown light on the sheer variety of POWs interned in Britain, which went far beyond Germans to include East Europeans, Africans and in some instances South Americans. Second, the project has highlighted the entangled relationship between local citizens - in Handforth - and the prisoners. Third, the number of POWs that ended up hospitalised in asylums was astonishingly high - some German prisoners still remained in local asylums until after the Second World War. Exhibition at Handforth Public Library (05/09/2016-10/09/2016), Posters erected around Handforth.

Collaborator Contribution Professor Barling led the project, directed the research and the delivery of the outputs
Impact "Hidden Heroes of Empire' was a CHH sponsored collaboration between Professor Kurt Barling (Middlesex University) and Eastside Community Heritage (ECH). Barling trained undergraduate students from across media and film disciplines at Middlesex University on how to transform research in the archive into content for audio podcasts and a documentary. 'Hidden Heroes' the 16 minute film will be entered into the student category of film festivals in 2017 and is available on the CHH Youtube feed. The film has already been shown publically, most recently at the Stratford Public Library in East London to commemorate the Battle of the Somme. Students are using this film as a vehicle to secure employment. Hidden Heroes engaged students right through the educational chain from primary to undergraduate level. Primary School children were introduced to the project through the pop-up exhibition by secondary school students who had prepared artefacts and games to engage these younger students. Some secondary schools have held assemblies organised and run by students. Some have organised events for parents to visit the exhibition. Two local MPs visited the exhibits in schools Enfield (Joan Ryan) and Tottenham (David Lammy). A symposium was held at Middlesex University which included school children and teachers to explore the need for a more diverse approach to exploring our national story. A survey was conducted which helps us understand the type of information that appeals to schoolchildren who attended the pop-up exhibition. Survey over 400 children and their teachers. The main static exhibition was held at Bruce Castle Museum in Tottenham. Its popularity meant it was extended beyond Black History Month in 2015 to June 2016. A number of public events including workshops and talks were held at the museum. The static exhibition and pop-up exhibition both received strong coverage in the local press and on regional BBC London radio. Featured in the HLF newsletter.

Collaborator Contribution Dr Sternberg led the project on the ground, acted as mentor to the community partners and oversaw the delivery of the project outputs
Impact "This CHH collaboration between Dr Claudia Sternberg (University of Leeds) and the 'In the Wrong Place, at the Wrong Time' group brought together dispersed information about the hitherto underresearched civilian internment and POW camp Lofthouse Park (with recourse to the wider research of Panikos Panayi, the HH Knockaloe project leader). Findings include details on Leeds 'alien' restrictions, names of internees, location mapping, local newspapers and official records research and cultural analyses of the overall oeuvre of internee Paul Cohen-Portheim. German language sources include, among others, memoirs and surviving camp magazines. It was also established that there is some local memory of the camp in Wakefield and that some residents have retained artefacts from the period. Unlike Lofthouse Park, Ruhleben Camp in Spandau has many surviving documents and a solid research base as far as the British internees are concerned (project member Matthew Stibbe is a Ruhleben and internment expert). We liaised and also met with descendants of internees who had already researched their individual family histories. Progress has been made to develop previously underrepresented colonial narratives relating to Irish, West Indian and African internees. We were also able to create a personal profile for an English internee whose correspondence is held at Spandau City Archive. Currently, we are gaining further insights into local responses to internment and the camp on the German side. The Ruhleben section of the Liddle Collection is being revisited, among others to create an inclusive narrative of musical production and study the literary production of internees. Claudia Sternberg, lead researcher on this project has engaged with curatorial and critical heritage studies as well as with forms of co-production - both from a practical and theoretical point of view. This is a new area for her, although there is some overlap with her long-standing interest in cultural memory studies and ethnographic enquiry. Furthermore, she has explored concepts that might support her aspiration to 'decentre' WWI commemorative practice (such as family display/legacies, sociology of the unmarked, agonistic memory, palimpsestic space/deep mapping, translocal, civilianness etc.). Working on this project as well as for Legacies of War at the University of Leeds has resulted in observations that reach beyond the question of internment. On various occasions, Sternberg has presented on the differences between British and German (war) memory cultures and the implication these differences have for the centenary and other contemporary concerns, especially the representation and understanding of European integration."

Collaborator Contribution Dr Georgescu led the project, liaised with the community partner and oversaw the delivery of the project outputs.
Impact " CHH funded a collaboration between Dr Tudor Georgescu at Oxford Brookes and the Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum. The central aims of the collaboration were to facilitate the museum volunteers' engagement with research, to offer additional training, and establish a firm and fruitful partnership between our institutions. Over the course of the year long project, 14 individual research projects were carried out in the museum archives and explored hitherto unused (in some cases uncatalogued) sources, and which produced the rich tapestry of personal narratives explored in the exhibition. The War Beyond the Western Front focused on the Oxf and Bucks battalions' experiences of the Italian, Balkan, Middle Eastern and Russian campaigns. It revealed a fascinating and intimate history of the First World War, one that is also lucidly illustrated the global dimensions of the First World War and our own role therein. The exhibit had three interconnecting sections covering: The research projects conducted by the Soldiers of Oxfordshire Museum and Brookes volunteers and that explore personal histories found in the museum archives; a collection of artefacts on loan from the museum that are such impressive material legacies of the war; and a series of 28 stereoscopic pictures converted into 3D anaglyphs that reinvented these remarkable images and made them accessible to a wider audience. Ultimately, the exhibit aimed to be an informal, engaging space in which to rediscover a remarkable perspective on the history of the First World War, and to encourage a conversation about what it means to us during the centenary commemorations and beyond. Evaluation Data To capture some the exhibition's reach and affect, visitors were encouraged to complete a brief survey left out on the information table, and the 59 responses received offer truly rewarding results. In terms of overall experience, 76% rated their visit as "excellent" and 85% would "definitely" recommend it to friends. Most importantly though given our central aim to uncover hidden histories and augment current perceptions, a remarkable 76% fed back that their visit had "definitely" "added to how your think about the First World War" and offered a multitude of written comments on how the personal narratives and 3D images in particular have impacted their understanding of the War.

There were speeches from Spiral Arts, Councillor Jangir Khan, Stuart Bagley - one of the students who produced the banners - and Paul Elliott, the academic lead. Refreshments were provided and a harpist played to create an appropriate atmosphere. The public were able to examine and interact with the displays (the textile banner had flaps with more information and pictures beneath). The project provided a valuable and enjoyable experience for our students of working with heritage, arts and community groups, experienced academics and the general public to bring history to new audiences. The banners and information boards have subsequently been displayed in Derby Library and the Council House.

Primary Audience Public/other audiences
Results and Impact As part of the WW1 Derby Green Spaces Community History Project, 10 well dressings were designed and produced by Spiral Arts and various volunteer groups in a series of workshops. These included five local schools (Markeaton Primary, Rosehill Infants, St Mary's Primary, Griffe Field Primary and Arboretum Primary), a young mums group and an over 50s group from QUAD. The well dressings were themed around Derby Green Spaces and the home front using information derived from the academic lead and project volunteers and exhibited at location in the city centre: Déda, Derby Central Library, Derby Local Studies Library, Derby Cathedral and Derby Tourist Information Centre, the QUAD and the Derby Arboretum.
The well-dressing trail was launched on Saturday 25 June 2016 in the Orangery at Derby Arboretum by Deputy Mayor John Whitby and blessed by Canon Missioner Elizabeth Thomson from Derby Cathedral who described the Well Dressing trail as 'the green heart in Derby's historic spaces'. The well dressings were displayed until Sunday 3 July.
The well dressing art is unique to Derbyshire. Traditionally well dressing frames are soaked in the local river before being packed with clay. A design is marked out onto the clay and then each section is carefully covered with individual flower petals, leaves, seeds, coffee beans, feathers and stones to complete the design.
Jenny Anthony, Creative Arts Director at Spiral Arts commented that:
'We have thoroughly enjoyed working on this project with the University of Derby, we have found it very interesting to research about the parks history 100 years ago. We hope to continue delving into the archives to find out more about how life was in the past and to use our findings to create a textile banner and historic WW1 exhibition at the Summer Celebration in August in the Arboretum Park..'
Clare Limb, Head of Dance Development & Learning said: 'It is a real honour to be involved in the well dressing trail again this year. We love the designs and we always hope that Spiral Arts will ask us again to host a well dressing at Déda, it is a real privilege'

He emphasised how wide the audience was that we were hoping to reach and also provided examples of some of the projects already under way. Andy Potter asked about some of Professor Elliott's findings and took a very keen interest in the project, including work that he had done on the role of Rolls Royce during the War and also the ways in which the War was commemorated in Derby, including the presentation of guns and other memorabilia.
