This seminar explores how images of female grief for loved ones lost during the First World War and the concept of ‘sacred motherhood’ were translated into French pacifist propaganda campaigns. It considers how these images, reacting to international political situations and the whims of public opinion, reconceptualized the role women played in the crusade for peace. It concludes with an exploration of the impact philosophical, political, and religious differences had on women’s perception of themselves as agents for peace.

All welcome- this seminar is free to attend but advance registration is required.
