Historian Dr Fiona Reid addresses international conference

Fiona Reid - Deputy Head of School, SHASS

USW historian Dr Fiona Reid recently spoke at ‘World War One: Dissent, Activism and Transformation’, an international conference held at Georgian Court University, New Jersey.

Dr Reid, who is currently writing a medical history of the First World War, spoke about the different status attributed to the different types of wounds, from the highly romanticised ‘Blighty’ to the (sometimes) shameful self-inflicted wound. Her paper will be published in an edited collection later next year.
