Nineteenth-Century Handwriting Study Day & Workshop
**New Date TBC**
Elizabeth Gaskell’s House, Manchester
How did people learn to write in the nineteenth century? What’s it like to use a dip pen? How did different writing implements shape the rhythms of writing? What difference did class, gender, impairment, or neurodiversity make to writing instruction? And how can a greater understanding of the act of writing shape our engagement with nineteenth-century texts, people and archives?
Organised by academics from Bangor University, Loughborough University and the University of Glasgow, the Nineteenth-Century Handwriting Study Day & Workshop brings together new research into writing practice in the long nineteenth century with practical, hands-on workshops.
