Seminar: Researching the early British press
January 23, 2020 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM at SAHAAS Library, Sandridge Gate Business Centre, Ronsons Way, St Albans, AL4 9XR
Speaker: Ruth Herman
Newspapers and other periodicals are by their nature ephemera. They are transient and their content is inextricably tied to the moment they were written. So how can we look at these scraps of history and make the most of their clues. The seminar looks at where to find the earliest newspapers and how to read them as background to events and to the mind-sets of their readers and writers. The session will include 17th and 18th century examples.
