Insightful and informative summary of papers, discussions, and at the end a very useful list of relevant questions that necessitate further research and debate.
The Lives and Afterlives of Letters Network’s three events for semester 1 take the form of four 10-minute lightning talks with 40 minutes of interdisciplinary discussion following, with a special focus on methodological issues and the sharing of best practices.
The first session took place on Thursday 12 October in the historic surrounds of the Christie Room at the John Rylands Library, and centred on the study of Networks and Individuals.
A report of the four lightning talks and the discussion following is provided below.
