Concentrating on gender and cultural memory, this study investigates the ways in which masculinities and the web of power relations that they entail worked during the interwar years in order to reconstruct the post-First World War British society. It focuses especially on notions of national identity, class and sexuality and their representations in British visual culture in the aftermath of the Great War.
