Engage: Bringing WW1 history into the present with Twitter

Thursday, 06 November 2014, 12:30pm-13:30pm, 13 Banbury Road, Oxford, OX2 6NN

Making First World War history accessible 100 years on can be challenging but social media has the potential to shed new light on what it means to remember. As part of the Engage: Social Media Michaelmas series Mechthild Herzog from the University of Luxembourg will be discussing her experiences of working in the team coordinating the Twitter project @RealTimeWW1: Tweets from 1914-18 which has aimed to make these connections possible. Come and learn about the ideas behind the project, how it developed, the challenges and subsequent lessons learnt when using Twitter in this creative way.
