We thought that this exhibition might be of interest to members – it’s just upstairs in the library on the 4th floor of Senate House, and is well worth checking out!
Senate House Library is hosting a free exhibition and series of events running from the 16th of January through March 2017, displaying and promoting the library collections of those who defined themselves as radical in the specific late eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century British sense, as well as those who more generally advocated for societal improvements through reform. Senate House Library has organically developed into a hub for collections of radical voices of the last few centuries. Revealing this strand in the library collections not only sheds light on enormously influential but subsequently neglected figures, campaigns and organizations, but also on the University’s own institutional history, and potential futures.
Tickets to view the Radical Voices exhibition are free and are available at the membership desk on the fourth floor of Senate House. Please see the library’s operating hours before planning your visit.
In addition to the exhibition, the library will be hosting a series of events, including film nights, conferences, concerts and an ephemera road show. Please see the website for more information about these events and to register to attend.
