In this talk Dr Alex Broadhead tells the story of English dialect literature, beginning in the 16th century and finishing in the Victorian age.

It is a tale that takes in (almost) every part of England, from Cumbria in the north-west to Newcastle in the north-east, and from Cornwall in the south-west to Kent in the south-east.

If you are interested in accents and dialects, and if you want to learn more about the weird, inventive and startling ways in which writers have committed them to print, then come join us!

Tuesday 24 January, 1.30-2.20pm.

Suitable for ages 12+.
