Emily Hobhouse's Peace Activism: War Without Glamo

Emily Hobhouse's Peace Activism: War Without Glamo


The War Without Glamour exhibition is part of a project being undertaken by Dr Dampier from the School of Cultural Studies & Humanities at Leeds Beckett University, together with academics from the University of Huddersfield and University of the Free State.

Emily Hobhouse is celebrated for her relief work in the concentration camps of the South African War.  This exhibition uncovers Emily Hobhouse’s less well-known contribution to international peace, humanitarianism, and South African politics in the post-war period, including her work in Germany following the First World War. Through her remarkable writings – most vividly her book _War Without Glamour  – _it  tells the story of her lifelong commitment to revealing the devastating impact of war on civilians. Newly-donated papers at the Bodleian Library in Oxford are showcased alongside letters, paintings and artefacts from international collections. 

Visit the Emily Hobhouse project website [] for further information.

If you are interested in finding out more about the curation of the exhibition in the UK and South Africa, Dr Helen Dampier  [](Leeds Beckett University) and Dr Rebecca Gill (University of Huddersfield) are giving a talk as part of the Leeds Cultural Conversations series on 6 November at Leeds Town Hall.

Further information is available on the eventpage [].
