Launch of The War Illustrated online resource

This Saturday sees the launch of the Digitizing The War Illustrated project online, organised by the Network of Research: Movies, Magazines, and Audiences (NoRMMA).

NoRMMA are a research network situated within the School of Arts, founded in 2014, which began with focus on the use of fan magazines for the purpose of film history research.

This National Lottery-funded project 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 formal inauguration of the digitised resource will be celebrated with a special event and vintage tea dance on Saturday afternoon, 7 September 2019.

Everyone is welcome to come hear interesting talks about the project, witness – and participate in! – enjoyable dance lessons with music of the time, and enjoy an afternoon tea. This event will be held in the School of Arts’ Jarman Building, 2pm to 5pm.

Places are free but must be booked in advance: please email normma.network@gmail.com to express your interest.
