A Bit Lit

April 28, 2021
By Andy Kesson, Emma Whipday, and Callan Davies


When lockdowns kicked in across the world in spring 2020, A Bit Lit was born as a platform for sharing conversations, talks, readings, creative work and now podcasts. In over one hundred films, the A Bit Lit team have brought together scholars and creative practitioners and many more to talk about the early modern period and much more besides. In this conversation, the SRS’s John Gallagher chats to Andy Kesson (Roehampton), Emma Whipday (Newcastle), and Callan Davies (Roehampton) about how they’ve created such a vibrant platform,the joy of conversations between scholars and creative practitioners, new approaches to public engagement and research, and what to expect next.
