An invitation to contribute

  • This Wiki is for everybody. Even if you don't have to write an article, you can still help, for example by correcting typos or by connecting articles through links. Click here for more information on how to do that.
  • Since this is a scientific project, there are some ground rules (as outlined above), but these should not deter you from experimenting with the wiki system and enjoying writing for an audience.The neat thing is: you gain both in writing (by boiling down a topic to its important elements) and in reading, as this wiki is well on the way to being an encyclopaedia of British history and culture, which you can use in this and future cultural studies classes.
