Lecture examines wartime footage

Members of the public are invited to the lecture, which will be presented by Stephen Badsey, Professor of Conflict Studies.

Professor Badsey is an internationally acknowledged expert on propaganda and military-media issues from the mid-19th century to the present day.

His first research position after leaving university was to catalogue the Imperial War Museum collection of documentary and newsreel films of the First World War period, which have remained a life-long interest.

Among his many publications are the Introduction to the Imperial War Museum Film Catalogue Volume 1: The First World War Archive (1994), and The British Army in Battle and Its Image 1914-1918 (2009). He appears on, and advises frequently for television and other media as a historian and commentator.

The lecture will take place at the University’s Millennium City Building, from 5-6pm on Wednesday May 28.

For enquiries and to reserve your place please email Fran Pheasant-Kelly at f.e.pheasant-kelly@wlv.ac.uk or Stella Hockenhull at s.hockenhull@wlv.ac.uk.
