SCOLAR Rare Books Lecture Series: Prof. Edna Longley on Edward Thomas

8 October 2015

The SCOLAR Rare Books Lecture Series recommences for 2015/16: a series of talks with a connection to Cardiff University’s Special Collections and Archives.

This October, Professor Emerita Edna Longley, of Queen’s University Belfast, will give a paper titled ‘Finding “something to read”: Edward Thomas’s reviews and early twentieth-century print culture’. This is especially fitting, given that Special Collections and Archives is the home of the family archive of the war-poet Edward Thomas.
