The general editors of the Oxford Edition of the Writings of Alexander Pope, in collaboration with the Centre for Literary Editing and the Materiality of the Text at the University of Birmingham, invite you to this one-day symposium to be held at the University of Birmingham on 27 June 2018.

Radiating from our central concerns with textual transmission, material texts in manuscript and print, and conceptions of the literary work, discussion will address the range of Pope’s diverse writings and consider possible modes of future reading. On 28 June, the day after the symposium, there will also be an opportunity to visit the Hurd Library at Hartlebury Castle.
