Emma Hanna is a Research Fellow at the University of Kent. Her research interests include the cultural history of Britain and the two World Wars, particularly the complex relationships between the media, history and historians in representations of the conflicts. Her first monograph, The Great War on the Small Screen: Representing the First World War in Contemporary Britain was published by Edinburgh University Press in November 2009. She has published articles in peer-reviewed journals of international standing, and is a regular speaker at conferences and public talks. Emma’s current research interests are focused on modes of entertainment on the home and fighting fronts in the First World War, principally cinema and music, and the work of voluntary organisations such as the YMCA and Talbot House. Emma is also researching the campaign during the 1920s to abolish the military death penalty, and she has advised on the history of the Christmas Truce of 1914.
