Michael Portillo will examine how the outbreak of war in 1914 postponed a civil war in Ireland and a general strike, and attracted most suffragettes to vigorous support of the government's war effort. It was a railway war. Railways precipitated a mechanised war. They were the conveyor belt for men to the trenches and for the shells intended to annihilate them. Railways determined how the war was fought, the outcome of battles, and arguably the outcome of the war itself. The British people were motivated by the plight of Belgium and the fear of German imperialism. But after the war, the British started to think that the war had been futile and they had been the victims of propaganda. The Germans' denial of war guilt played an important part in the rise of Adolf Hitler.

Lecture given by Professor Paul Fiddes (Oxford University)
War raises the problem of human suffering in an acute way. The aim of this lecture is to develop a theological response to suffering in our own lives today, including the impact of war but not restricted to this experience. The argument is grounded in the witness of poets of the First World War, expressing actual human experience of war with a particular intensity. The belief that God suffers with us offers needed consolation and the possibility of giving meaning to our own human stories, two themes that are painfully and poignantly explored by the poets of war.
Lecture given by Dr Catriona Pennell(Senior Lecturer in History at the University of Exeter)
Reviewing how historians have written about the First World War and how that has evolved over time, Dr Pennell explores the 'revisionist' framework currently used to view the war and how public memory and perceptions have similarly altered. She ends the lecture with some of her own reflections of where the British public is 'up to' regarding popular memory of the war. What can be said as we move into the centenary period? What are her hopes for the centenary in terms of what it will allow for 'rethinking'?
