Please join us virtually at the CCB on Thursday, April 15, at noon for Professor Matthew Grenby's 2021 Gryphon Lecture, "Going Global: Transnational Networks and the Spread of Early Modern Children’s Books." Professor Grenby's talk will examine the international networks through which children's books circulated the globe during the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries, evolving in form as they intersected with new cultural contexts.
M.O. Grenby is the Dean of Research and Innovation in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at Newcastle University and Professor of Eighteenth-Century Studies. His books include The Anti-Jacobin Novel (2001) and The Child Reader (2011); he is co-editor of the Companion to Children's Literature (2010) and Popular Children's Literature in Britain (2008).
The Gryphon Lecture is an endowed talk given annually at the Center for Children’s Books. It features a leading scholar in the fields of youth literature, media, and culture.
