Ageing: A Bookish Adventure
A seminar by Desmond O’Neill (School of Medicine, Trinity College Dublin) as part of the Manuscript, Book and Print Seminar Series, organised by the Manuscript, Book and Print Research Theme and the Library of Trinity College Dublin. This new seminar series showcases the diversity of research conducted in Trinity related to the research theme in Manuscript, Book and Print Cultures, which among many other topics includes a focus on historical questions around the origins and development of writing systems, literatures and literary cultures, with research on issues related to textuality in society like literacy, reading and wellbeing, and policy issues around maximising access to Ireland’s written cultural heritage. Papers address engaging children in reading, the wellbeing benefits to reading in Old Age, the experience of working as a creative writer with illustrators, manuscript culture, and digitisation and the new possibilities it opens up for research in this field.
