On Saturday 18 November, a colloquium will be held at in the Lecture Theatre of the Weston Library, Bodleian Libraries, Broad Street, Oxford:

“Disseminated and Re-circulated: Popular Culture in Script and Print”

Looking at diverse forms of script and print, from bestsellers and children’s books to scrapbooks, educational ephemera and civic documents, this colloquium will examine how print and manuscript cultures enabled and influenced the dissemination, absorption and recirculation of popular culture – broadly defined – with eighteenth century audiences of different ages and conditions, reflecting popular interpretations, playing to popular taste and addressing every conceivable subject.

Speakers:

  • Andrea Immel, Cotsen Children’s Library, Princeton University
  • Mark Jenner, University of York
  • Freyja Cox Jensen, University of Exeter
  • Catriona Seth, University of Oxford
  • Jill Shefrin, Trinity College, University of Toronto and Royal Bank of Canada Foundation Fellow, Bodleian Libraries, 2017
  • Tessa Whitehouse, Queen Mary, University of London

Moderator: James Raven, University of Essex

Organizer: Jill Shefrin, Trinity College, University of Toronto and Royal Bank of Canada Foundation Fellow, Bodleian Libraries, 2017
