The English Language Council lecture

 in partnership with the English-Speaking Union


Voices and Images from

the First World War

Lucinda Hawksley


Lucinda Hawksley will look at the language and images employed by British journalists,

propagandists and artists during the First World War. This lecture will look at the vision of war

that those in Whitehall wanted to be portrayed – as well as that which was created by those at the

front line.


The English Language Council Lecture explores topics relevant to the global community of

English language-speakers, and with the upcoming centenary of World War I, will this time look

at the links between conflict and creativity.



Lucinda Hawksley is the author of Lizzie Siddal, The Tragedy of a Pre-Raphaelite Supermodel;

Katey, The Life and Loves of Dickens’ Artist Daughter and Charles Dickens: A Bicentenary

Celebration. Her other titles include March, Women, March: Voices of the Women’s Movement; 50

British Artists You Should Know and What Makes Great Art (co-written with artist Andy Pankhurst).

Lucinda is a lecturer in literature and art history and is a regular speaker at the National Portrait

Gallery in London. She is an award-winning travel writer, a patron of the Charles Dickens Museum in

London and of the Norwegian Pickwick Club, and is a great great great granddaughter of Charles and

Catherine Dickens. At the end of November, her latest biography, The Mystery of Princess Louise:

Queen Victoria’s Rebellious Daughter will be published by Chatto.


Who is this for?

All those with an interest in the power of language, or the commemoration of the First World War.
