Interview with Historian Lucy Noakes

Today we interviewed Lucy Noakes, Professor of Modern History from the University of Essex.  Lucy talks to Daisy about how women were affected by the Great War, and how their stories are still important today.

Lucy has written about “the relationship between politics and history, that led to my fascination with the past as a teenager, thus continues to inform my work today. The ways that we approach and understand past lives, and the ways that their stories are remembered, are central to contemporary politics. The work of historians today probably has a greater relevance and urgency than at any other time in the recent past, making it an important and exciting subject to study, research and teach.”

The interview is by Daisy from the East Sussex Youth Cabinet.
