Updated: Mar 5

Are there similarities between Scottish, Russian, and New Zealand Māori experiences of the Second World War? This event took place on 6 December from 8-9pm GMT (7 December in New Zealand/Australia) and featured Professor Wendy Goldman, Professor Angela Wanhalla, and Dr Michelle Moffat. You can see the recording of the event here.

The panel discussion focused on the new ground forged by the authors’ recent studies of the Second World War, including key arguments relating to dissent, national identity, and public responses to state measures. Professor Goldman discussed her award-winning book Fortress Dark and Stern: The Soviet Home Front during World War II; Dr Michelle Moffat her newly published study Scottish Society in the Second World War: Tradition, Tension, Transformation; and Professor Wanhalla her upcoming publication Te Hau Kainga: The Māori Home Front.
