The project aimed to engage new audiences with academic research through the attractive and accessible presentation of archival content. The KE award provided match funding for a successful application to Arts Council England, which enabled the team to commission Katherine May to design and build the website as well as providing a neo-Victorian narrative to link the research. Activities included: the creation of the website at http://glorious-and-unknown.co.uk/ as well as reminiscence training, participation in the Being Human Festival, related activities at the Folkestone Book Festival sponsored by South Eastern Rail, and presentation of the website as part of the Margate literary festival inaugurated in November 2015. The website was covered in the national press in connection with digital contributions to the Being Human Festival and can be described as a digital ‘choose your own adventure’ website based on the time travelling figure of ‘Lucy’, who journeys from 1862 London Victoria to 1922 Margate. The website showcases work undertaken by colleagues in our English, History and Education courses and provides a portal for local and seaside studies that can be accessed by universities, schools and members of the general public.

Local communication has changed significantly in recent years due to developments in digital technologies. This project aims to develop our understanding of how local news and information flow online and how local communities use online platforms. To achieve this aim, as well as to address methodological challenges in relevant industry and academic research, two new innovative research tools will be piloted to develop methodologies that are more apt to study online environments than traditional methods. A greater understanding of online local communication will benefit a variety of stakeholders who have an interest in reaching and interacting with local communities.
The project aims:
This is a pilot project that will focus on Herne Bay as a case study, which provides a well defined and active local community. To meet its aims the project will have the following activities:
