Pen and Print: archives, books and ephemera for research

June 12, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

ALL WELCOME! This event is FREE but booking is essential. Reserve your ticket here

Doctoral candidates David Osbaldestin, (CPHC/Birmingham City University) and Judith Davies (CPHC/University of Birmingham) will present a range of political ephemera and other documentation held in the Cadbury Research Library. David, a typographic historian, and Judith, a social and cultural historian, will talk about their research and the material on display from the perspectives of their differing disciplines.

This is the third in a series of bi-monthly seminars on the theme of ‘Pen and Print: archives, books and ephemera for research’. The purpose of the seminars is three-fold: a) to familiarise researchers who are using historical sources with the range of material available in the CRL; b) to engage researchers from a variety of disciplines to explore together how primary sources can be used; and c) to compare the different approaches that scholars from diverse disciplines take to the interpretation of manuscripts and printed matter.
