For our next event we are delighted to welcome back Dr Adam Smyth, a stalwart supporter of the Birkbeck Early Modern Society, excellent speaker and author of Autobiography in Early Modern England (Cambridge University Press, 2010).

Dr Smyth’s recent interests include the inventive materiality of early modern texts, and the remarkable things readers did to books in the name of reading.

The lecture will be followed by our usual drinks and snacks.
