Cardiff University lunchtime workshops-wonderful old books
The Special Collections at Cardiff University (SCOLAR) are a treasure trove worth exploring and . this year, SCOLAR is offering a pilot series of lunchtime workshops where you can do just that!
SCOLAR holds much illustrated material including literary, scientific, medical, and women’s periodicals and miscellanies, newspapers, children’s literature, art and architecture, novel, plays and poetry, travel literature, ballads and almanacs, and prints, posters and propaganda.
There is a workshop on women’s studies Decmebeer 6th or 7th, with sessions on historical travel literature and World War One sources in the spring. The workshops are intended to raise awareness of the breadth of material available to support research in these areas, and as a general introduction to using Special Collections and Archives.
