Fiona Byrne is the History Engagement Officer for Living Legacies 1914 – 1918. The Living Legacies 1914-1918 Engagement Centre is a focal point for connecting academic and community researchers interested in how the First World War lives on in the twenty-first century world. The Centre is based at Queen’s University Belfast, and its purpose is to work with community-led research projects across the United Kingdom to help achieve greater levels of outreach and engagement beyond their immediate localities.
The Centre is funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) in partnership with the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for three years from January 2014 to December 2016. The Centre is developing programs to support community projects working on the legacies of the First World War.
