Welshness and Britishness: The Case of Richard Llewellyn

Dr Wendy Ugolini is Senior Lecturer in History at the University of Edinburgh. Her research interests focus on the relationship between war and identity in the twentieth century. Her first monograph, ‘Experiencing War as the “Enemy Other”: Italian Scottish Experience in World War II’ (Manchester University Press, 2011), was awarded the Royal Historical Society’s Gladstone Prize.

In her contribution to the Research Exchange, she discusses the dual Welsh and British identity she explores in her recent article for Cultural and Social History: ‘The “Welsh” Pimpernel: Richard Llewellyn and the Search for Authenticity in Second World War Britain’.
