Dr Ann-Marie Einhaus

Senior Lecturer

Department: Humanities

Having gained my MA from Freiburg University, Germany, I undertook my doctoral research in the Department of English Studies at the University of Durham and taught at both Freiburg and Durham before joining the Department of Humanities at Northumbria as a lecturer in January 2012. I work primarily in the fields of First World War studies and early-twentieth-century British literature and culture. I'm a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, and have additional research interests in links between teaching, literature and remembrance of war, and the interrelation between literature and history/historiography. I work and publish on early-twentieth-century writers at both ends of the middlebrow-modernist divide, from P.G. Wodehouse to Wyndham Lewis, and on contemporary historical fiction.

Research Themes and Scholarly Interests

My primary research interests are writing about the First World War, the short story, and European literary magazine culture of the war and inter-war period. My first monograph, The Short Story and the First World War (CUP, 2013), explored literary engagement with the war in the medium of short fiction in literary and popular magazines and anthologies from 1914 to the present. Related to these interests, I edited a new Cambridge Companion to the English Short Story (CUP, 2016), and co-edited (jointly with my colleague Katherine Baxter) the Edinburgh Companion to the First World War and the Arts for Edinburgh University Press in 2017. At present I'm working on a new project that explores inter-war engagement with foreign language literature in British periodicals.

I also have an interest in links between contemporary literary representations of the First World War and the war’s memory. I am interested in the way in which the First World War and its literature are taught in secondary schools and universities across the UK, and I was Co-Investigator on an AHRC-funded exploratory research project - "The First World War in the Classroom: Teaching and the Construction of Cultural Memory" - with Dr Catriona Pennell at the University of Exeter, which ran from February 2013 to August 2014. Our project was based on a survey of secondary-school teachers in England, exploring aims, methods and topics connected with teaching the First World War in the light of the war's upcoming centenaries and its coverage in the news, film and literature. Please visit the project website for details and a full project report. 

I am currently an Advisory Board member and event co-organiser for the AHRC-funded Teaching and Learning War research network, which brings together researchers and educators from the UK and different Commonwealth countries with an interest in how the two world wars are taught and commemorated by and for young people. More details are available on the network webpages.
