As part of the AHRC-funded project 'A Publishing and Communications History of the Ministry of Information, 1939-45', we are holding an international conference on the subject of information and its communication in wartime. Although we have a particular interest in the Second World War, we wish to set this in a much larger context, and so the theme will be explored throughout several periods and areas. 


The School of Advanced Study is part of the central University of London. The School takes its responsibility to visitors with special needs very seriously and will endeavour to make reasonable adjustments to its facilities in order to accommodate the needs of such visitors. If you have a particular requirement, please feel free to discuss it confidentially with the organiser in advance of the event taking place.
