This exciting long-term project, funded by the National Lottery, centres on digitizing the important World War I magazine The War Illustrated (1914-1919) and making it available online for all, and for free, for the first time. The University of Kent’s Network of Research: Movies, Magazines, and Audiences (NoRMMA) looks forward to welcoming members of the general public as well as students and staff in the Humanities to our events over the summer.
We are running day-long workshops on the 24th and 31st of July to introduce the magazine to participants, explore the online archive, equip attendees with research skills, and support individual research projects. A progress day on 19th August will give workshop attendees the opportunity to further discuss these with their fellow researchers.
Participants will be invited to join us for the tea-dance themed launch in September, where they will have the chance to present their work and celebrate their achievements.
All activities will take place in accessible venues at the University of Kent, and refreshments will be provided.
Places are FREE, but must be booked ahead, as each workshop is limited to 12 participants. Please email us soon on firstname.lastname@example.org to book your place on either workshop or to be kept up to date with further events.
