Chapman to speak at Changing Britain Festival

Elizabeth L Chapman who recently completed her PhD at the Information School will be speaking at the Southbank Centre's Changing Britain Festival on Saturday 2 May 2015

The Festival focuses upon the 1997 to 2015 period and Elizabeth will be speaking during the 'Changing Britain Bites' session at 17.00.  She will discuss the research topic of her PhD, which is the provision of LGBT fiction to children and young people in public libraries. Until recently there was little LGBT fiction available for children and young people in the UK.  Elizabeth's will discuss how this has changed over time, and will also outline some of the findings from her PhD research.

For more information about the event, visit the Southbank Centre website or follow them on Twitter.  The Festival hashtag is #changingbritain and Elizabeth can also be found tweeting as @lgbtlibrarian.
