The Rare Books Division, University of Utah, and the University of Georgia invite you to a live-stream talk by Dr. Belinda Stillion Southard, Dept. of Communication Studies, University of Georgia. Dr. Southard will use an image from the rare book collections during her talk. The event is part of the University of Georgia’s participation in TED. Live-streaming for Dr. Southard’s talk begins at 4PM EST, Friday, March 22, 2013. The image is “Philadelphia Hall Burning” from History of Pennsylvania Hall, Philadelphia, 1838, first edition. This book was part of the exhibition, “Public Sentiment: A Nineteenth Century War of Words,” curated by Luise Poulton in 2010. An online version of the exhibition was created by Alison Conner in 2012. It is from the online exhibition that Dr. Southard found our image.
