Three years have flown past. Very fast indeed.
The Leverhulme Trust project on the A Social and Cultural History of the British Press in World War Two is coming to an end. Today the group is presenting the results of the project to some of the best historians and media historians in their field. And the location could hardly be more apt- Fleet Street in the St Brides institute!
Part of the findings will be from the quantitative coding that Caroline Dale, Marc Wiggam and I worked on for approximately a year. This is where we find out how well such a research method will be accepted for research into the social and cultural history of the press.
Although my contribution has been very limited on the whole, it has been a fantastic project to be part of, and it has been amazing to be part of the brilliant team. With just this symposium and the book to go, wish us luck!!
