Your summer of reading starts here!

Your summer of reading starts here! We’re excited to launch a new online event, taking us through to the Autumn with a monthly Monday evening meeting to discuss an article selected from Costume. You’ll be able to book via Eventbrite Confirmed for the first three months meetings on Zoom are: Monday 3 August 19.30, Pat Poppy, 17th century accessories vol 54, Mar 2020 Monday 7 September 19.30, Veronica Isaac, Ellen Terry, vol 52, Mar 2018 Monday 5 October 19.30, Susan North, Indian Gowns, vol 54, 2020 We are launching an online Reading Group drawing on articles from Costume. This will take the form of a facilitated discussion group on Zoom and for the first two with the authors as well. We’d like to celebrate and share the wealth of knowledge in the Journals with our members and have selected the three above as a start. In advance of each session we’re inviting you to read the chosen article then come along with your questions to pose to the authors, for the first two, and for all sessions be part of a discussion about our shared enthusiasm. The sessions are free but you need to book a place via eventbrite. Once you have signed up via eventbrite we’ll send details about joining the session. Each session is 60 minutes and we are using the platform Zoom. It’s easy to set up if you are not already familiar with the platform. Members can access articles from the Journal page of this website by logging in as usual, or choose your paper copies of Costume to read Alternatively access the journal via the Edinburgh University Press site and use the token issued with your paper copy To book to attend the first session with Pat Poppy follow the booking link for Eventbrite
