New Centre for Material Texts exhibition space opens with 19th century commonplace books

display-for-newsThe first Centre for Material Texts exhibition is now live in the new exhibition cases on the first floor of the English Faculty at 9 West Road.

Graduate students on Ruth Abbott’s MPhil module on 19th century writers’ notebooks have installed an exhibition of original 19th century commonplace books. The exhibition had its first installment in October 2015 at the Wordsworth Museum in Cumbria, and it has now come south and been reimagined for the English Faculty.

The commonplace book created as part of the exhibition has now been digitized here.
