Our next event features a topic which is dear to our hearts…
Dr Angela McShane (V&A), ‘Brimmers and Boozers: Materialities, Identities and Practices of Drinking in Early Modern England’, Thursday 28 April, 6.30 pm, Room B03, 43 Gordon Sq
Dr Angela McShane teaches the history of design at the V&A and the RCA, and also researched popular politics and everyday life in seventeenth-century England, especially cheap print, drinking cultures and objects of loyalty. She is an expert on early modern ballads and has just written Political Broadside Ballads of Seventeenth-Century England: A Critical Bibliography. Her illustrated paper on drinking in early modern England promises to be lively and stimulating, and afterwards we can all put theory into practice and raise a glass to Dr McShane!
Membership remains a mere £5 and is available on the night; alternatively, you can attend this event for a one-off price of £3.
