In November 2011, Woman’s Weekly celebrated its 100 year birthday by including a reproduction of the first issue inside the centenary edition. A month later, US Vogue launched a digital archive containing every page published since 1892. These events remind us of the rich history which lies behind titles that continue to grace the shelves marked ‘women’s magazines’ on both sides of the Atlantic. This conference will examine the role of women as producers, subjects and consumers of magazines in countries all around the globe. It will also explore magazines as important historical and contemporary records which are being made more accessible by digital technology. Delegates will be able to browse exhibitions from the archives of a number of different magazines and the aim of the conference is to encourage dialogue between scholars from different disciplines and representatives of the modern magazine industry.
Tickets: £110 OR Concession for postgraduate or unwaged delegates: £85
(for both days including, teas/coffees, lunches and Conference dinner on Friday night)
