Professor Angus Hawkins book launch in Keble Library
Professor Angus Hawkins book launch in Keble Library
Monday 10 August, 2015
Over seventy people attended the launch of Victorian Political Culture: Habits of Hearts and Mind by Oxford University Professor of Modern British History and Keble Fellow, Angus Hawkins.
The author used the occasion, held appropriately in Keble’s fine Victorian library, to announce the establishment also of the new Keble Research Centre in Victorian Political Culture. The Centre will explore the intellectual, religious, linguistic, literary, social, technological and economic developments shaping the public culture of Britain from the 1790s to the beginning of the 20th century. Joining Professor Hawkins at the Centre are two of his former students, Dr Ralph Walter and Dr Kenneth Gray. Together they will be organising seminars, conferences, sponsor colloquia, and provide research resources for students and scholars of the period.
Pictured at the launch are speakers Robert Faber, History Commissioning Editor at Oxford University Press, the author, Angus Hawkins and Sir Jonathan Phillips, Warden of Keble.
