Rachel Caines, Interrogating Gender through First World War Propaganda Posters
Rachel Caines is a cultural historian of the British Empire during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. She has a particular interest in the ways in which understandings of gender, race, nation, and Empire intersected during this period. Much of her research centres around the First World War and its immediate aftermath in the 1920s and 1930s. Her current PhD research analyses depictions of imperial gender ideals in First World War propaganda from across the British Empire, with a focus on the British colonies and Dominions. Her MPhil, which explored the commemoration of Indigenous Australian and Māori First World war soldiers in national sites of memory, was awarded a Dean’s Commendation for Research Excellence in 2020. She is the author of two book chapters which are due to be published in 2022, and has presented her research nationally and internationally at conferences and public lectures.
