Tracing the Belgian Refugees: research project and database

‘Tracing the Belgian Refugees’ is a project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and run by colleagues at the Universities of Leeds, Antwerp and UCL. The aim of the project is to trace and record some of the Belgian refugees who came to the UK during the First World War, in order to improve our knowledge and understanding of their experiences and legacies. Part of this project involves building a database in collaboration with some of the individual and community projects investigating Belgian refugees that have taken place during the Centenary of the First World War. For this talk, Christophe Declercq and Alison Fell will introduce the project and share some initial findings.
