“Literary history and the present are dark with silences.” Tillie Olsen, ‘Silences’, 1978.

Hitherto Unknown: Research Workshops, Thursday 4th October, 5.30pm to 7.30pm at GWL, Thursday 1st November, 5.30pm to 7.30pm at Mitchell Library, Monday 4th February, 6.30pm to 8.30pm at Platform

Inspired by writer and social activist, Tillie Olsen, and her legendary reading lists, these research workshops will uncover the writers and stories silenced by the barriers of gender, class and race. Across the city, in the archives and lending library collections, we will find vital voices that have been forgotten and build our own new reading list.

For events which take place in other venues, the facilitators will meet you at the other venue. Alternatively, you can meet at GWL earlier to travel together. Please call or email us to ask for details as you would need to meet at GWL earlier than stated times above.

You can find out more about the location of Platform here, and the Mitchell Library here.
