The Broadside Day is our annual one-day conference covering street literature in all its fascinating aspects – broadsides, chapbooks, songsters, woodcuts, engravings, last-dying speeches, catchpennies, wonder-tales, almanacs, fortune-tellers, and all kinds of cheap printed material sold to ordinary people in city streets, at country fairs, and from pedlar’s packs up and down the country in past centuries.
This year the conference is being hosted by the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow on Saturday 23 February 2019. Glasgow has a strong history of street literature publication, and we would like to encourage submissions on local themes. We are inviting contributions of 20 min papers, poster presentations or displays on any related topic which may include (but not limited to):
