Events

Events are a large part of life here at the university and we believe that our entertainment, lectures and debates should be open for everyone to enjoy and join in with. We host a wide range of events though out the year so we are sure there is something for everyone. We hope to see you soon!

Make sure to download the latest edition of our events programme and news magazine BG&You for articles, dates for the diary and a way to stay tuned with the university and its activities.

‘The Social Networks and Information Environment of Nineteenth Century Agricultural Improvement’ – School of Humanities Research Seminar

November 15 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Wed 15th November (1-2pm): Hardy Seminar Room 1 (Hardy Building)

Dr Shirley Brook (BGU) ‘The Social Networks and Information Environment of Nineteenth Century Agricultural Improvement’

There was great zeal for ‘Improvement’ in nineteenth-century farming circles. Progress was fuelled and facilitated by the proliferation of farming publications and increasing opportunities for social exchange afforded not only by membership of agricultural societies but also attendance at their shows. The influence of such media on both the farmers and the landowners, whose activities shaped the rural landscape, will be considered in this talk.
