In Trinity College, this research team consists of Professor John Horne and Dr Joseph Clarke in the Department of History and two postdoctoral research fellows. The Trinity College strand of this project focuses on the experience of French and British soldiers in Italy, the Balkans, Egypt and Palestine during the French Revolutionary wars and the First World War. In comparing the French and British expeditions of the 1790s and the Great War as cultural encounters, this research charts how Europeans confronted one another culturally in times of conflict and asks how this encounter changed when Europeans came face to face with non-European populations.
