Disseminated and Re-circulated: Popular Culture in Script and Print Back

Looking at diverse forms of script and print, from bestsellers and children’s books to scrapbooks, educational ephemera and civic documents, this one-day 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: Kathryn Gleadle; Andrea Immel; Mark Jenner; Freyja Cox Jensen; James Raven (moderator); Catriona Seth; Jill Shefrin; Susan Whyman
