The Godwin Diary: Reconstructing London's Culture 1788-1836

On 23-24 July 2010 the Leverhulme sponsored research project responsible for editing the diary of William Godwin will hold a two-day conference to introduce scholars to the new resource and to explore how that resource provides a distinctive light on our understanding of late eighteenth and early nineteenth century social and political culture.

The Godwin Diary conference will mark the culmination of three years' effort to edit the diary and publish a digital and fully searchable edition. Accompanying the searchable text will be a complete scan of the original diary.
