University of Brighton Libraries . St Peter’s House contains many relevant books and back-issues of many journals. The most useful I found was ‘Art and Industry‘, a contemporary journal, which includes many articles about the posters produced during the war.Tweet
This journal is dedicated to explorations of the material and political dimensions of cultural practices: the means by which cultural objects and communities are produced, the historical contexts in which they emerge, and the regimes of knowledge or modes of social interaction to which they contribute.
As the title suggests, Invisible Culture problematizes the unquestioned alliance between culture and visibility, specifically visual culture and vision. Cultural practices and materials emerge not solely in the visible world, but also in the social, temporal, and theoretical relations that define the invisible. Our understanding of Cultural Studies, finally, maintains that culture is fugitive and is constantly renegotiated.

Contemporary British History offers innovative new research on any aspect of British history - foreign, Commonwealth, political, social, cultural or economic – dealing with the period since the First World War. The editors welcome work which involves cross-disciplinary insights, as the journal seeks to reflect the work of all those interested in the recent past in Britain, whatever their subject specialism. Work which places contemporary Britain within a comparative (whether historical or international) context is also encouraged. In addition to articles, the journal regularly features interviews and profiles, archive reports, and a substantial review section.

Nationalism is one of the central issues of the modern world. Since the demise of the Soviet Union there has been a proliferation of nationalist and ethnic conflicts. The consequent explosion of interest in ethnicity and nationalism has created an urgent need for systematic study in this field. Nations and Nationalism aims to satisfy this need. As a scholarly, multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary journal, it is designed to respond to the rapid growth of research in the study of nationalism and nationalist movements throughout the world.

The editors are committed to publishing work that examines the British experience within a comparative context, whether European or Anglo-American.

“Appearing three times a year, Visual Culture in Britain publishes original work that places a broadly defined visual culture encompassing painting and sculpture, architecture and design, print, film, photography and the performing arts in relation to its wider geographical and historical contexts. The journal seeks material engaged with the period from the 18th century to the present day and addresses a range of debates involving constructions of racial, ethnic, sexual and gender identities, nationality and internationalism, imperialism and colonialism, high, low and consensus cultures, the role of institutions and cultural groupings, and models of production and consumption. Submissions which consider theoretical and interpretive issues as well as those concerned with empirical research in relation to cultural production and representation are encouraged. Material which is methodologically and historiographically innovative and significant and will stimulate discussion and demonstrate connections across relevant disciplines is particularly welcome.”

“The poster-maker, the pamphleteer and the tagger aim to sway the popular heart and mind through visual public interventions. As new technologies rise, turning the public sphere into a transparent, ubiquitous communications medium and a global marketplace, is the privileged status of the poster doomed or are we seeing it transformed as part of a new wave of visual rhetoric? When the environment starts to become responsive to our very presence and aware of our individual nature what is the role of the ‘traditional poster’ delivering a classical rhetorical message? This peer-reviewed journal aims to lead the debate.
The Poster stands as a vehicle for the ideas of media theorists; scholars of Cultural Studies and Cultural Materialism; for social psychologists of visual communication, for architects and designers of wayfinding schemes; for philosophers of Aesthetics and Politics, Society and Linguistics; for social scientists, anthropologists and ethnographers; for political campaigners and artist activists; for communications researchers and visual communications practitioners.”
I’ve just been asked to be Associate Editor/Peer Reviewer on this journal – apparently they contacted me before, but I never received the email! Visit the journal site.Tweet
