Monarchy and New Media conference

The end of the Diamond Jubilee year affords an opportunity to look back and examine a neglected aspect of the history of the monarchy: the engagement with new forms of media. The British Library, in collaboration with the Royal Archives and the IHR, has curated a special collection of archived web resources, available as part of the UK Web Archive. This raises many interesting questions, which might fruitfully be addressed in historical context.
