Ann-Marie Foster

PhD in History

Ann-Marie Foster is a PhD candidate at Northumbria University, working on a thesis titled ‘The Ephemera of Remembrance in the Wake of War and Disaster, 1899-1939’ funded by the AHRC Heritage Consortium and supervised by Dr James McConnel and Dr Jenny Macleod. Ann-Marie’s research is focused on the ways in which families and individuals grieved after war (such as the Boer and First World Wars) and disaster (mining, rail, and sea), thus exploring patterns of mourning which emerge in relation to sudden death during the early twentieth century. She was awarded a 2017 Gerda Henkel scholarship by the Historial de la Grande Guerre. In 2016 she catalogued First World War ephemera for the British Library as part of their PhD placement scheme.
