Public History Group 16 January: Archiving the unlawful

2016 January 10


Dr Richard Espley , the British, Irish and Post Colonial Literatures and Languages Research Librarian at the Senate House Library,University of London, will give a talk entitled “Archiving the unlawful:collecting, but concealing  suppressed material in a University library”.  This talk will explore the collection, and concealment, by an anonymous member of Library staff during the First World War of illegal anti-war propaganda. As well as pursuing the identity and motivations of this figure, we will also consider the responsibility of libraries to preserve marginal ideas.

We meet from 11 for coffee with the session starting promptly at 11.30 in the Institute of Archaeology, UCL, 31 -34 Gordon Square, London, WC1 0PY. Further details can be found at the UCL website by clicking here.

All welcome !
