Description

Special Roundtable: Reading blindness in the nineteenth- and early twentieth-century archive.

Birkbeck's Forum for Nineteenth-Century Studies in London is hosting a roundtable discussion between 6-7.30 with papers by the SMLLC's Dr Hannah Thompson and others, examining how new technologies created new communities of blind and partially-sighted readers in nineteenth and early-twentieth century France and Britain.

This will be followed by a drinks reception and opportunity to view the exhibition Touching the Book: Embossed Literature for Blind People in the Nineteenth Century, currently on display at Birkbeck's School of Arts.
