FRAME Home Page

FRAME is a major AHRC-funded research project into narratives of the Second World War and Occupation in France since 1939. Based at the University of Leeds, it is a collaborative project involving the universities of Leeds and Durham.

In 2006, the Arts and Humanities Research Council awarded 450k to Professors Margaret Atack and Christopher Lloyd to carry out the following three year project: 'Narratives of the Second World War and Occupation in France 1939 to the present: Cultural Production and Narrative Identity'.  Dr Nina Sutherland was appointed to the research assistantship; Dr Peter Millican, Director of the Leeds E-text centre, assisted initially by Dr Sarah Cattau and more recently by Henry Merivale, has led the work on the construction of an interactive thematic and bibliographical database.  Two doctoral studentships are associated with the project: Ruth Kitchen and Richard Harness were appointed in October 2006 and January 2007 respectively.

The project was due to complete in September 2009, but an extension to April 2010 was agreed to offset the commitment of time to management responsibilities for one of the investigators.

The thematic and bibliographical database of Second World War and Occupation Narratives will be available for on-line searches by the end of November 2010.  It will contain details of about 2000 texts, including full entries (synopses and thematic details) for over 1000 of them, with more being progressively uploaded in the course of the year.

For further information see About the Project.

This web site will provide up to date information on the progression of the project and its dissemination through conference papers and publications.
