Bitesize Curator's Talk: Subversive Literature in the Library

Past Event

Saturday, 19 May 2018 - 2pm to 3pm

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.
