Reading Group Session
Monday, November 2nd 2020
Following on from trialling three Reading Group sessions we’ve decided to continue these on monthly basis on the first Monday at the same time, 7.30pm. The sessions will remain free but booking is essential via eventbrite. We’re making a slight change to the booking which should be easier for all of us. Each session will be bookable separately rather than in a block of several at a time. The next session is on Monday 2 November when you can join Charlotte Nicklas, who will discuss her article, ‘It is the hat that matters the most’: Hats, Propriety and Fashion in British Fiction, 1890-1930, which featured in Costume, Vol 51, Issue 1. The article can also be accessed online through the members area of the Costume Society website. Login through the banner at the top and then the link "Read Costume online" should appear on the right hand side of the "Costume Journal" page. Please make sure to read the article before coming to the meeting. We look forward to seeing you there.
