About the keynote speaker
Manon Pignot is maitresse de conférences in Modern History at the Université de Picardie-Jules Verne in France. A scholar of children’s experiences during the First World War, her monographs (including Allons enfants de la patrie. Génération Grande Guerre, Éditions Seuil, 2012; and Paris dans la Grande Guerre, Parigramme, 2014) have examined, amongst other issues, how children experienced and articulated their feelings of fear, isolation and trauma during conflicts in France and (to a lesser extent) Britain and Germany. Dr Pignot's work makes use of uncommon sources (children’s diaries, drawings and material culture) to contribute to an analysis of children’s well-being and emotional landscapes during times of war.
