    Film Studies, Politics and Government

    An on-going project whose core function is to make accessible primary material related to the history of the Ministry of Information between 1939 and 1946. The MoI was established by the British government at the outbreak of the Second World War and was responsible for issuing ‘National Propaganda’ at home and abroad, as well as censoring information deemed to be of military value. Using all available modes of communication, the MoI produced films, organised radio broadcasts, issued pamphlets and posters to local authorities, published books and illustrated magazines, curated exhibitions and undertook pioneering social surveys. This website offers access to all the Home Intelligence Reports and Wartime Social Surveys which were created for the purpose of monitoring public opinion. Of special interest are the reports related to propaganda films which summarise the reaction of correspondents to films such as War in the East, Seaman Laskier Goes Back to Sea, Rush Hour and Newspaper Train, Three in a Shell Hole, Sam Pepys Joins the Navy, Royal Observer Corps and Naval Operations. This is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in how propaganda is produced and used.

    The outcome of a research project led by the University of Warwick, this site investigates the history of cinematic projection, the role and image of the cinema projectionist, and the contemporary expansion of projected images and events outside the cinema. It uses a mixture of methods, including oral history, archive research, interviews, textual analysis, photographs and short films to document and explore film projection and the digital transformations of the twenty-first century. The site is organised into four main categories: Virtual Projection Box, which enables the interactive exploration of a projection room; Changing Technology-Changing Work, a tour showing the ways in which technological developments have changed the projectionist’s job; Exploring the Box, which highlights the key features of a 1910s projection room; Women in the Box, about the work of women projectionists across the history of cinema. Highlights include: a film demonstrating the flammability of different types of film stock; an audio clip about adapting to digital projection technologies, and a short news item depicting a ‘projectionette’ showing films for a wartime audience.

    What is a feminist? This site presents an extensive response to that question in the form of a well-curated oral history archive of the lives of British feminists. The fruit of a Leverhulme funded research initiative, the project’s researchers interviewed 60 feminists who were active in the Women’s Liberation movement in the UK in the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.

    The site features interviews with women arranged around a number of themes, including Activism, Equality and Work, Education, Politics and Legislation, Race, Place and Nation, Sex, Love and Friendship, Bodies, minds and spirits, Family and Children, Changing Cultures and the Arts and Who we Were and Who we Are. The audio clips on this site have been extracted from longer interviews which are available in their entirety at the British Library.

    Other resources on the site include Biographies page with profiles of prominent members of the British feminist movement, including academics, writers and broadcasters such as Beatrix Campbell, Sheila Rowbotham and Jenni Murray. An interactive Timeline begins in 1961 and charts the significant social and political events (and legislation) of the times alongside landmark episodes in the women’s movement. The material on this site is a fraction of what was recorded for the project: much more is available at the British Library.
