Research at IWM aims to develop understanding of the history of modern war and wartime experience through our rich and diverse collections. In this blog we introduce you to the work which the Department of Research co-ordinates in order to further this aim.
IWM Collections cover all aspects of twentieth and twenty-first century conflict involving Britain, the Commonwealth and other former countries of the Empire, and embraces objects, film, testimonies, books, documents and photographs. We will bring you news of:
- interesting and unusual collections at IWM currently bring researched by our curators
- academic conferences and seminars
- IWM research projects
- news of other research activities which we think might interest you.
The blog is largely written by members of the IWM Research Department, but you will also hear from people who work closely with us from time to time.
