In fact\, recent arguments have ques tioned whether “the coterie” is a meaningful concept at all.\nProfesso r Betty Schellenberg will tell the stories of several widely divergent lit erary coteries that flourished in the middle of the eighteenth century – whether centred in a country house\, a suburban grotto\, an ornamental fa rm\, a London mansion\, or the virtual space of handwritten letters. The d istinctive characteristics of these tight-knit networks in fact gave rise to some of the most “modern” features of eighteenth-century print publ ication.\nTickets: £11\; Students / Friends £8.50 (includes drinks and c anapés) DTEND:20170518T193000Z DTSTART:20170518T173000Z LAST-MODIFIED:20170323T180900Z SUMMARY:Evening Talk: What Is A Literary Coterie And Why Does It Matter?
