Research Interests

Professor Sheftall's research focuses broadly on the relationship between war and social and cultural change in the modern world, and more specifically on World War I as a defining example of that phenomenon.

In 2009, I.B. Tauris published his book, Altered Memories of the Great War: Divergent Narratives in Britain, Australia, New Zealand and Canada, which compares the ways in which Britons, Canadians, Australians and New Zealanders during the First World War and inter-war years imagined and rendered, within their respective cultures, the experience of the Great War.
