About this project

This project has been made possible by funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council and help from the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in Britain and Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre. We would also like to thank Sarah Lloyd at University of Hertfordshire (director of the Everyday Lives in War centre), the staff of Friends House library, especially Lisa McQuillan, and everyone who agreed to be interviewed or talked casually with us during the research process.

Of our interviewees, those who agreed to be named are Paul Parker (Recording Clerk of Britain Yearly Meeting), Suzanne Ismail and Cait Crosse (both workers for Quaker Peace and Social Witness), and Lis Burch (former clerk of Britain Yearly Meeting. Many thanks to all of them and to our anonymous contributors.

Comments and questions can be directed to Rachel Muers by email at r.e.muers@leeds.ac.uk.
