Lise Jailant writes about our symposium



Lise Jaillant, PhD candidate in English at the University of British Columbia, writes:

I attended a one-day symposium earlier this year at the University of Reading (Authors, Publishers and Readers: Selling and Distributing Literary Cultures, 1880-1940). It was a tremendous day. Andrew Nash and Nicola Wilson started with two excellent papers based on their research in the publishers’ archives at Reading. Dr. Nash focused on nineteenth-century writers who sold their copyright (despite being advised not to do so by the newly-created Society of Authors). Dr. Wilson talked about working-class writers published by the Hogarth Press and Chatto & Windus in the 1930s….
