Dr Andrew Maunder (Hertfordshire) on “Infant phenomena: Victorian child stars and early-victorian celebrity culture”, Tuesday 3 May 2016 (Room Prg03)
The seminars are all open to the public, take place from 5pm, with tea & coffee available from 5 and the talk beginning 5.15. For more information, please email Susan.
