Why remember? Why are 100 years significant? How would you remember? These questions were posed as part of a research network and educational campaign linked to the now iconic installation of ceramic poppies at the Tower of London, Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red.

Join Dr Joanne Sayner, Department of Modern Languages, for this participatory workshop in which you will have a chance to reflect on your own answers to these questions, to respond to an animated film about the First World War made by pupils at the Grey Coat Hospital in London, and to discuss your reactions to the installation at the Tower.
