Defining Mass Observation

A2212cThe Mass Observation Archive is  currently collaborating with the University of Southampton, the University of Birmingham and the University of Surrey on the ESRC funded research project, ‘Defining Mass Observation’. The project aims to uncover biographical information about the 4,000 people who have been writing for the contemporary Mass Observation Project (MOP) since it started in 1981. This information will be made available to the research community through an interactive, online, searchable database. Find out more about the project here.
