Free Webinar on researching Propaganda at the British Library (12th March 2014)
[this posting is forwarded from LIS-HISTORYRESEARCHLIBS@jiscmail.ac.uk]
In Summer 2013 we [The British Library] hosted an exhibition, ‘Propaganda: Power and Persuasion‘, examining the communication of power, and attempts to persuade, through the use of visually striking material and the objects of everyday life.
Examples of these can be found across the Library’s collections, and this webinar will describe the types of material that we used, how we used the Library to research the exhibition, and how similar materials can be found through our online services. It will cover posters, leaflets and pamphlets, maps, philatelic materials and recorded sound.
This webinar will be of most use to people planning to use the Library collections and Reading Rooms in their research, but will also be of interest to those more generally interested in political history, propaganda and ephemera.
Host: Ian Cooke, Social Science Curator at the British Library, and curator of the ‘Propaganda: Power and Persuasion’ exhibition.
