My name is Dr. Stephanie Seul and I am an historian working on the international history of media and communication in the era of the two World Wars.
I have published on topics such as British propaganda during the 1930s and the Second World War, the representation of Weimar antisemitism and the Holocaust in the contemporary international press and radio, the International Press Exhibition PRESSA in Cologne in 1928, and the German-Jewish press during the First World War. My most recent research project explores women war reporters during the First World War from a comparative perspective.
I work as a research associate in media history in the Department of Cultural Studies at the University of Bremen in Germany. This is my blog where I write about my research off the beaten track of academic journals and books hidden behind paywalls.
