Centre PhD student initiates new Canadian World War 1 Project

Centre graduate student, Luke Flanagan, is conducting academic research on Canadians in his hometown of Bexhill-on-Sea, East Sussex during the First World War.

Luke is investigating how the siting of a Canadian Officers Training School and Canadian Trench Warfare School in Bexhill between 1917 and 1919 contributed to questions of Canada’s constitutional development within the British Empire. Luke will be presenting this research at a conference entitled ‘Canada Abroad’ to be held Queen’s University’s Bader International Study Centre in East Sussex in July 2013.
