New Plenary Speaker: Julian Harrison

As our list of plenary speakers for this years conference keeps growing, the BritGrad committee are excited to share with you our next plenary speaker. While we are busy compiling the schedule we are delighted to introduce Julian Harrison, curator of pre-1600 manuscripts at the British Library.


Julian’s research area covers medieval and early modern manuscripts from the British Isles, spanning the Anglo-Saxon period to the 17th century. He is also an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Glasgow.

Julian has recently curated the British Library’s exhibition on the Magna Carta (2015) and an exhibition on Shakespeare at the University of Birmingham’s library (2016).  He is the lead curator of the forthcoming Harry Potter exhibition at the British Library.   Julian has previously delivered a paper here at the Institute and we very much look forward to welcoming him back this year.
