Second World War Conversations: Visuals, News & Propaganda in Wartime Britain

 

This event will be held online.

The RSE-funded Second World War Studies Network (Scotland) aims to facilitate the discussion and exchange of ideas on the theme of the Second World War. As part of the relaunch of the Network, we are hosting a short series of summer online panels, entitled ‘Second World War Conversations’, continuing with a panel on visuals, news and propaganda in wartime Britain.

This discussion is moderated by Wendy Ugolini. Jonathan Black will be speaking on wartime artist Eric Kennington, Grace Stephenson on British cinema newsreels, and Marc Wiggam on the British national press.

The panel will be taking place on Tuesday 22nd June, from 10am – 12pm BST, on Microsoft Teams.
