10:00 Forbidden Access: Censoring Books and Archives

The conference is a collaboration between the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, the Institute of English Studies and the Senate House Library. ‘Forbidden Access’ is a multidisciplinary conference exploring how published works and archival materials and the ideas contained in them are affected, obscured or distorted by censorship. The conference seeks to explore the proliferating and divisive causes, symptoms and effects of the censoring impulse, from overt interference with a text to the subtler, intangible effects of caution and fear in the face of anticipated control, and to do so in relation to a variety of angles and contexts: aesthetic, cultural, socio-economic, ideological, legal, and political.  Please click here to go to the Conference Web Page, (http://www.ies.sas.ac.uk/ies-conferences/ForbiddenAccess) where you can access further information, including the programme and online payments.
