A podcast recorded as part of the Outrageously Modern! lecture series is now available to download.
Ann-Marie Einhaus, formerly of Durham University and now at Northumbria University, explores the Great War as represented in magazines of the time.
How did magazine editors deal with the first modern “total war”? And how did readers first encounter poets who are now household names? This lecture takes Siegfried Sassoon as a starting point, before considering the publication of some lesser-known First World War poetry in modern and popular magazines.
This talk is one of a series of lectures to accompany Outrageously Modern!, an exhibition of avant-garde magazines at Durham’s Palace Green Library.
The final lecture in the series takes place on Friday 5th October at 12.00. Editors Benjamin Eastham and Jacques Testard, who set up the journal The White Review in 2010, will talk about their inspirations in founding the journal, its reason for being and the processes of setting up a print publication. Drawing on the tradition of literary and artistic journals past and present, this arts and literature quarterly represents an attempt to create a space for emerging artistic and literary forms in the twenty-first century. The lecture will provide a fitting way to close the exhibition of historical magazines by thinking about the future of publishing.
