Description

This talk by 3 speakers will explore the hidden history of Scotland's children's literature, based on the book archive holdings of Edinburgh's Museum of Childhood and the work of the SELCIE (Scotland's Early Literature for Children Initiative) team at Edinburgh University. Discover a rich forgotten heritage of chapbooks, fairy tales, fables, and more, as well as stories about the little readers who once held them in their hands. Sarah Dunnigan teaches at Edinburgh University, writes about diverse aspects of Scottish literary history, including women's writing, medieval, traditional, and children's literature. Danielle Howarth is a PhD candidate in Medieval Studies at Edinburgh University and principal research assistant on the SELCIE project. Lyn Stephens is curator at Museum of Childhood.

All events in our lecture series include an opportunity to meet the guest lecturer, coffee and cakes and a special tour of the Castle.
