Subversive Literature in the Library
With Anna Corkhill
The Library holds a large array of publications at one time deemed unfit for public consumption — seditious, obscene, defamatory, libellous and otherwise ‘subversive’ books and journals. Join curator Anna Corkhill as she reveals how these publications came into the Library’s collections and what they tell us about society’s changing attitudes towards dissenting ideas.
