Nineteenth-Century Handwriting Study Day and Workshop

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.

Supported by the British Association for Victorian Studies (BAVS): and the British Association for Romantic Studies (BARS):
