Want to learn more about how to identify the evidences of reading in printed texts? Want to contribute your own thoughts and experiences of reading to our new European research project, READ-IT? If the answer is yes, or you are just curious to find out more, join us for this free READ-IT public engagement workshop at the Mitchell Library, Glasgow, on Wednesday 11 December from 4-6pm.
There will be a brief introduction to the READ-IT project (15 minutes), a hands-on, facilitated collective annotation activity (45 minutes), and the chance to contribute your own experiences of reading via our new QR code enabled postcards (30 minutes). As part of this event, you will also be able to contribute your own experiences of reading in Glasgow, whether you’re a resident or a visitor, via the READ-IT project’s public upload portal. Feel free to offer your thoughts about what you’ve read recently or share your favourite image of reading with us. Because after all, what are books without readers?
Tea and coffee will be provided. The event is FREE to attend, but please do register in advance via Eventbrite. The venue is the Moir/Dyer/Simpson Room, The Mitchell Library, North Street, Glasgow G3 7DN. See venue details.
No prior training or expertise is needed to attend this workshop. You might want to bring a laptop or tablet with you, and you will need your smartphone for the postcard session. If you can, please register an account with the READ-IT contribution portal at before the session.
