Intellectual Speed Dating
Oxford University Press: Very Short Introductions
Saturday 5th October 2019, 3-4.30pm
Robert Graves Gallery
Join us for a fun-filled event which will leave you plenty the wiser as we celebrate the publication of the 600th Very Short Introduction from Oxford University Press.
The Very Short Introductions are a fabulous way to discover a new subject: high-level but digestible overviews written by experts in their eld. The audience will be split into small groups who will move around the Gallery, enjoying ten minutes with each author for a snappy introduction to their topic, plus time for questions. When the bell rings, you must move on! It’s speed dating – for ideas.
We are delighted to be joined by:
Belinda Jack, on Reading
Bernard O’Donoghue, on Poetry
Ben Hutchinson, on Comparative Literature
Laura Marcus, Autobiography
Jenny Hartley, Dickens
Books will be on sale and the event will be followed by a book signing.
