100 year old suffrage posters

“Our weapon is public opinion” – Posters of the women’s suffrage movement at the University Library
“These posters are fantastic examples of the suffrage publicity machine of the early twentieth century,” says Chris Burgess, exhibitions officer at the Library. “They were created to be plastered on walls, torn down by weather or political opponents, so it is highly unusual for this material to be safely stored for over a hundred years.”

I graduated with an Interactive Arts degree in the 90s and since then I’ve enjoyed working with student data systems, processes and teams across a range of universities, colleges and schools. I like to keep up to date with what’s happening in art, data, education and technology, and use my blog to record all the interesting things I find along the way. Well, I find them interesting anyway.
