Sponsored by Z. Smith Reynolds Library and the Wake Forest Humanities Institute, visiting scholar Julie Park will talk about her research on eighteenth century commonplace books, with a reception following the lecture. Dr. Park is a scholar of English literature and culture of the long eighteenth century.

Her areas of specialty include material and visual culture, history of subjectivity, the history and theory of the novel, genre and gender studies and archival studies. Reception to follow.
