New Book - History of Newport's University

The ART IN NEWPORT archive was a key source for a recently published history of the University of Wales, Newport.

Peter Brown's lavishly illustrated and entertaining No more worlds to Conquer: The Story of Newport’s University (2009) rises above the usual dry as dust institutional history, to connect with the social drama and radical history of Newport.

The author draws extensively upon the ART IN NEWPORT series of projects exploring art and society in C19 & C20th Newport: James Flewitt Mullock and the Victorian Achievement, Documenting the Twentieth Century, Documenting the City.
