Personal profile

Research Interests

Dr Foster's research focuses on family memorialisation after war and disaster in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. She is broadly interested in memory cultures, and how material objects and ephemera shaped family experiences of loss. Her work focuses largely on Britain, but makes links with other memory cultures present in fin de siècle Western Europe. 

Dr Foster has been involved in a wide range of public history initiatives. She has helped several institutions identify how to best use their ephemera collections, has created exhibitions, and blogged widely about family memory and the First World War. She is currently Communications Officer for the Centre for Public History.
