Jane Chapman: “Double the Work, but Double the Scope? Researching Comparative and Interdisciplinary Media History” | Tue 24 Jan | 18:00 | Senate House (Room 243), University of London
Comparative media history using content from beyond the English-speaking world and the British Empire is still relatively unexplored as a field for publication. This presentation proposes a way forward, by identifying the existence of transnational themes that emerged from the reality of print communications during the long 19th century: modernism, “orientalist” trade, cultural and scientific exchange, design, and fashion. Focusing on Germany, France and Japan, the pros and cons of an interdisciplinary approach are discussed in relations to science periodicals in Europe, women’s uses of periodicals in the late nineteenth century, periodicals for ex-patriot communities and satirical publications.
Jobs & Paid Internships
This exciting role will support the administration and coordination of the Communications and Marketing department at Queen Mary Students’ Union.
