Our research community

With 15 members of staff supervising over 30 research students, our War and Peace research group  studies the causes, course and consequences of large-scale human conflict. The group includes military, international, medieval, political, cultural and social historians. We encompasses both breadth of approach and depth of scholarship. War and Peace’s current projects include the University’s major Legacies of War: 1914-1918/2014-2018 initiative, externally-funded investigations into military intelligence and medicine in the First World War, and editing War in History, the world-leading journal for the study of the subject.
