PHD STUDENTSHIP: American Political Pamphlets, 1920-1945 (University of Sussex and the British Library)

June 1, 2017

Collaborative Doctoral Project Studentship
Sussex University and the British Library: American Political Pamphlets 1920-1945 (2017)

The project: This project will draw on the British Library’s extensive holdings of American political pamphlets to study and contextualise the writing, printing, distribution and dissemination of political pamphlets produced in the years preceding and during the Second World War. The Library’s collection of American pamphlets from the interwar period contains publications by different anti-fascist, anti-capitalist and pacifist societies. These include the Socialist Party of America, the Young People’s Socialist League, the American League Against War and Fascism, the Jewish People’s Committee, the War Resisters League, the World Peace Foundation, as well as anti-imperialist societies such as the United Aid for Peoples of African Descent, among many others. The researcher will also benefit from access to the extensive collection of US political pamphlets at the Marx Memorial Library, a partner of the project.
