Philobiblon: Reading and listening

Reading and listening

Carnivalesque No 14 is now up on Earmarks in Early Modern Culture and it is a fascinating "Cabinet of Curiosities", with a particular focus on women's history, from the diary of an aristocratic figure (Lady Shelburne) to Takeri Tekakwitha, the first Native American to be beatified by the Catholic Church. Do check it out! (And thanks to Kristine for giving my posts such a great run.)

On the listening side, I've just heard the second programme in Radio Four's Fascinating Deaths series, and it was again excellent, this time about the 2 million-year-old Taung child - the first identified Australopithecine found.

No thanks needed -- they were all such fascinating posts that I couldn't choose!

Nice interview on the Australian radio by the way! It was a strange experience to listen to you in a different medium than in writing -- very enjoyable.
