In the run-up to #BloomsburyFest 2013, we are sharing a series of blog posts offering a sneak peak at this year’s line-up of performances, events, talks and workshops hosted by the School of Advanced Study.

In this post we introduce Ian Cooke, who along with Sue Woods (BFI) will lead an exploration of public information films from the last 70 years. Ian is the Lead Curator in International Studies and Politics at the British Library and is co-curator of the Propaganda: Power and Persuasion exhibition that concludes on September 17, 2013.
