Announcing this semester's close reading workshops
News from Oct 23, 2020
The Reaching the People team are excited to announce the series of close reading workshops which will be held this winter semester. As in last semester, these sessions will see us discuss recent publications and as-yet-unpublished manuscripts with the authors themselves, exploring new ways of writing global histories of communication. This semester will see us host the following workshops:

7 December 2020 Ismay Milford (University of Edinburgh), Professional Lives and Global Debates in East Africa's 'Information Sector', 1950s-70s
