Lecture (Philadelphia): Joseph Adelman on "Revolutionary Networks"

Wednesday, September 18, 2019 - 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM

Revolutionary Networks: The Business and Politics of Printing the News, 1763 - 1789
Reception and lecture

Join author of the JHU Press book Revolutionary Networks Joseph M. Adelman at the Library Company of Philadelphia. 

During the American Revolution, newspapers, pamphlets, almanacs, and broadsides played a crucial role as a forum for public debate. In Revolutionary Networks, Adelman argues that printers were artisans who mingled with the elite but labored in a manual trade, and that they used their connections to shape Revolutionary political ideology and mass mobilization. At the same time, printers balanced political beliefs with the commercial interests of their businesses, the customs of the printing trade, and the prevailing mood of their communities. Drawing on a database of 756 printers active during the Revolutionary era, along with a rich collection of archival and printed sources, Adelman's book surveys printers’ networks and explains how they played a vital role in the progress of the Revolution and creation of a new republic.

The event is free and open to the public. For more details and to register, see the event page on EventBrite.

“Baltimore: A Political History” Revisited
A book talk by Matthew A. Crenson


When JHU’s Matt Crenson published his political history of Baltimore in 2017, he launched a spirited conversation about Charm City’s quirks and challenges as well as its prospects for the future.  Politicians and public officials, academics and activists, members of the media and average citizens found insights and surprises in Professor Crenson’s monumental work that helped explain seemingly intractable problems and pointed to what might be next for a complex and beloved city.  On the occasion of the release of the paperback edition of his book, Matt joins us for a recap of the two-year conversation he’s been having about Baltimore’s political history and the latest developments from the chambers of City Hall to the corner down the block.

Reservations required. Cost: $24.00 plus surcharge and sales tax. Members contact the Hopkins Club; non-members may attend as guests of JHU Press by calling Jack Holmes at 410-516-6928 or emailing jmh@press.jhu.edu
