Research Interests

Corinna Peniston-Bird's work on oral testimonies is centred on the relationship between memories and cultural representations. She is currently working on gendered commemoration, with a particular focus on British war memorials. Her interest in untraditional source materials has recently been reflected in a jointly edited collection with Dr Sarah Barber entitled History Beyond the Text: A Guide to the Use of Non-Traditional Sources by Historians (London: Routledge, 2008) which introduces research students to methodologies and theories of how to engage with sources ranging from the visual (photographs, film) to the oral (personal testimony), to the material.
