JULIA GILLEN - Chlorine And Salt Do Not Mix

Joining TOM JACKSON to discuss the postcards from her past is Professor of Literacy Studies in the Department of Linguistics and English Language at Lancaster University and principal investigator of the Edwardian Postcard Project, JULIA GILLEN (The Edwardian Picture Postcard as a Communications Revolution: A Literacy Studies Perspective). Together we meet Ruby and Arthur and learn about theur cycling trips, consider the digital shoebox, spend the day in a spaceship made of sand and wonder where the earwigs went. And we’ll hear crosshatched tales of unexpected family reunions and how the census can fill in the postcard gaps. Wish you were here?
