This workshop for PhD and Early Career Researchers will introduce new research and creative interpretations of Herbert Read’s work.

This one-day workshop for PhD and Early Career Researchers marks the beginning of the Henry Moore Institute’s 2022-23 research season dedicated to Herbert Read, in collaboration with the University of Leeds.

Building on the foundation of scholarship that reassessed Read in the 1990s, it asks how his legacy has shifted in the twenty-first century. A series of short papers will simulate discussion and introduce new research and creative interpretations of Read’s work.

Lunch will be provided and the day will be rounded off with a wine reception to celebrate the launch of a new digital exhibition of material in the Herbert Read archive at the University of Leeds.
