"Blurred Lines: Telecommunications and Secrecy in World War I Telecommunications," a public lecture by Dr. Elizabeth Bruton, 4:30 PM, October 23, 2013, Rutgers University, Teleconference Lecture Hall, 4th Floor, Alexander Library, 169 College Aven
Telecommunications and their interception have been major features of military and civilian life since the early twentieth century. Upon the outbreak of the First World War, some of the earliest actions of the war involved curtailing enemy telecommunications while guaranteeing the security and safety of their own modes of telecommunication. Focusing on Britain, but also examining the U.S. and Germany, Dr. Bruton will explore the different interception techniques developed during the First World War and explore how concerns for security and secrecy shaped the development of telecommunications during the war.
Dr. Bruton holds a joint postdoctoral position at the University of Leeds and the Museum of the History of Science, Oxford.
This event is free, open to the public and will include light refreshments. The event will begin at 4:30 PM on Wednesday, October 23, 2013, in the Teleconference Lecture Hall, 4th Floor, Alexander Library, 169 College Avenue, New Brunswick, NJ 08901-1163.
