Gregory Hynes, DPhil in History:

My thesis explores the significance of 'imperial identities' to British and New Zealand First World War propaganda, especially the notion of a 'Greater British' community between Britain and the self-governing Dominions.

Global History avoids isolation and insular understandings. For me, it highlights the importance of connections, interactions, exchanges, and conflicts between groups, communities, and nations to shaping identities and understandings in history. The picture can only be complete through looking at these interactions, and exploring the spaces between nation and national histories.
