Event Navigation

On Thursday 26 July 2018 at 1 – 2 pm in the Djanogly Theatre, Nottingham Lakeside Arts, University Park, Colin Heywood, Emeritus Professor of Modern French History at the University of Nottingham, focuses on the society and culture in which children were raised in the 19th century. This talk will cover the massive increase in the quantity and quality of literature written specifically for children in 19th century Britain, which included a shift in content, from heavily didactic works to those concerned above all with giving pleasure to their readers. It will also analyse the underlying forces at work, notably the growing interest in childhood and education, and the achievement of near-universal literacy.

This talk is free but needs to be booked in advance from http://tickets.lakesidearts.org.uk/ or calling the Box Office on 0115 846 7777
