I feel greatly honoured by the following announcement and invitation to give a public lecture. Sorry about short notice:
Professor Simon Burrows, School of History, will be leaving the University of Leeds in January to take up a Chair at the University of Western Sydney, Australia. Throughout his 12-year career at Leeds, Professor Burrows has contributed with tremendous zest and innovation to the research and teaching community, and will be sorely missed when he departs.
We are delighted to announce that Professor Burrows will be delivering a valedictory lecture at 5pm on Wednesday, November 28th, under the auspices of the Centre for the Comparative History of Print (Centre CHoP), which he did so much to establish and energise.
Title: In Search of Enlightenment: From Mapping Books to Cultural History
Summary: Simon Burrows, Instigator and Principal Investigator on the French Book Trade in Enlightenment Europe (FBTEE) project, discusses the approaches and findings of the project and the future directions of research in the history of the reception of books
Time & Venue: 5pm, Rupert Beckett Lecture Theatre, Michael Sadler Building
The School of History will be hosting a drink reception in Simon’s honour after the lecture at 6.30pm, to which all attendees are welcome. The reception will take place on Level 3 of the Michael Sadler Building
