The “Reading Communities: Connecting the Past and the Present” Conference aims to bring together scholars studying reading communities and reading practices as well as oral historians, literary scholars, and those working on the relationship between reading and memory, particularly in relationship to World War II.
The event has been organised by Edmund King and Shaf Towheed as part of their AHRC funded follow-on project. The Digital Reading Network will be well represented, with papers from Bronwen Thomas and Simon Frost.
