Professor Ingrid Sharp

Legacies of War project involvement: Strand leader for War and Resistance, with interests in Culture and the Arts

Research Interests

Strands running through Ms Sharp’s teaching, research and professional activities include an interest in gender relations, a strong interest in international connections and relationships, including a commitment to language learning and teaching and the exchange of ideas.

Always interested in women’s history, gender relations and the representation of women in art, film, literature and the media, Ms Sharp’s current research projects are in the area of gender and conflict in the context of the First World War, with publications, conference papers and scholarly activities in this field planned in the next few years.

In 2005, she co-organised a major international conference on the Women’s Movement in Wartime 1914-1919, which compared feminist approaches to the war in the major combatant nations and which formed the basis of an edited volume published in 2007.  This was followed up in 2008 with another highly international conference, Aftermaths of War: Women’s Movements and Female Activists, 1918-1923, from which a publication will appear in 2010.
