How do scholars of the eighteenth century account for the ballads, broadsides, chapbooks, pamphlets, and news-sheets that flooded the streets of western cities, pinned up in taverns and on the walls of people’s homes? In this interdisciplinary conference, scholars are invited to a series of panel discussions examining 18th century ephemera from a literary, material, and curatorial vantage. Participants include keynote speakers Ruth Perry, Professor of Literature at MIT, and Adam Fox, Professor of History at the University of Glasgow, along with many others.
Co-sponsored by the PhD Program in Art History.
