About

As part of BRLSI's bicentenary celebrations, BRLSI is delighted to be hosting a one-day workshop organised by Dr Martha Vandrei (University of Exeter) and Dr Heather Ellis (University of Sheffield) aimed at historians, archivists, curators, librarians and local researchers and those interested in the humanities.

Between the mid-eighteenth and mid-twentieth centuries, informal, sociable and community-centred organisations flourished all over Britain, from cities to small towns and villages.

Speakers from across the UK will explore the crucial role played by these organisations in the development of humanistic and social knowledge in modern Britain.

Join your own community of knowledge makers for what promises to be a fun and stimulating day.

For the full programme please see this event on the BRLSI website.

Tickets include lunch and reception – please advise any dietary requirements by Friday 21 June to reception@brlsi.org

BRLSI also have a lecture being given by Dr Ellis and Dr Vandrei on the same evening, entitled Britain's Literary and Philosophical Societies in Historical Perspective – booking for the talk is separate and is available on the BRLSI website.
