A new exhibit, "The Crimean War in the French and British Satirical Press," is now on display at the Robert D. Farber Archives and Special Collections on the second floor of Brandeis University’s Goldfarb Library. The exhibit thematically explores how the satirical press of France and Britain represented the Crimean War, which involved the world superpowers of Russia, Turkey, France, and Great Britain and is considered to be the first media war. Stop by and learn about this fascinating chapter in world history through the lens of humorous outrage at the bungled diplomacy, explosive personalities, and incompetent administration that characterized this war. Exhibit hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
