The digital companion to the exhibit "The Crimean War in the French and British Satirical Press," currently on display in the Robert D. Farber University Archives & Special Collections Department (Goldfarb Library, Level 2), is now available at http://lts.brandeis.edu/research/archives-speccoll/events/index.html.
This 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. 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.
