Dr Emma West

Dr Emma West will give a paper based on her postdoctoral research at this year’s British Association for Modernist Studies (BAMS) Conference, ‘Hopeful Modernisms’, to be held at the University of Bristol on 23-25 June 2022.

Appearing alongside Kristin Bluemel, Luke Seaber and Michael McCluskey in a panel on ‘Rural Britain and Everyday Modernism’, Dr West will discuss ‘The Arts as/and Community Healing in Postwar Britain’.

The paper will draw on her research into the Arts League of Service and the move to democratise and decentralise the arts in the years immediately following the First World War.
