Lancaster University academics share their passion and research at Lancaster City Museum

We are very pleased to announce a new partnership with the Friends of Lancaster City Museum! Our staff has been invited to share their passion and research during talk staking place at the Museum at 1pm on Fridays.

During this talk, Dr Natasa Lackovic, Lecturer in the Department of Educational Research, discusses the graphic anthology "Traces of the Great War" and the learning and teaching toolkit that it inspired. This toolkit, primarily aimed at supporting KS3 teachers, applies critical thinking and pedagogy principles with graphic novels.

What would happen if a group of teenagers found a corpse of a WWI soldier in the melting ice of northern Italy? Was the post-armistice blockade an act that sowed the seeds of new war? Is the video game industry that relies on combat gaming a modern continuation of war mindset? These and many other profound and challenging questions that are tackled by the authors that contributed to the graphic anthology "Traces of the Great War". This talk will use the anthology as an example of how comics and graphic novels are far from a light read for struggling learners, but, on the contrary, can be an integral part of learning that engages critical thinking, research, compassion and creativity, essential for the futures of today's learners. The talk builds on the selected stories from the anthology, focusing on language, history, citizenship, and the power of story telling.

The talk will be held at the Museum's Education Room, with access from New Street, Lancaster. Attendance is free, but booking is essential. To reserve your seat, either call into the museum or phone 0152464637
