We are pleased to announce that the ESPRit online seminar series, initially launched in March 2020, will shortly enter its third series. The first two focused on ‘Crossover influences and local identities in the popular illustrated periodicals of the 19th and twentieth centuries’, and consisted of a combination of stimulating keynote addresses and fascinating 20 minute papers across a range of subjects.
