About Me

Dr Jenny Macleod is a Senior Lecturer in 20th Century History at the University of Hull. Her PhD was published as Reconsidering Gallipoli (2004), and she returned to the subject of Gallipoli, its commemoration and the relationship between the memory of war and national identity in her most recent book, Gallipoli: Great Battles (Oxford University Press, 2015). In it she compares the way Gallipoli has been remembered in Australia, New Zealand, Britain, Ireland and Turkey.


She has written peer-reviewed articles about national war memorials in Britain and Ireland and what they tell us about national identity, and on the fall and rise of Anzac Day in Australia. Her most recent article concerns the changing nature of newspaper coverage of Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday in Britain. Her next project will look at conscription in the British Empire during the First World War.


She is the co-founder of the International Society for First World War Studies, a network of academics and postgrads from around the world, and an assistant editor of its journal, First World War Studies.
