Spring Talk – ‘Fake News’, 18th and 19th Century Electioneering
April 2 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Hannah Nicholson has studied 18th and 19th century elections and political culture. She has recently completed her doctoral thesis at the University of Nottingham, examining the vast range of posters, cartoons, and songs which were printed and distributed during the elections.
This talk gives a flavour of these printed canvasses, and the bribery and corruption which accompanied many elections.
