W.T. Bandy Center Launched New Online Series of Recorded Talks

The WT Bandy Center launched a new online series of recorded talks by leading scholars who consulted the Bandy Collections, advancing their scholarly work. This series coincided with the 2021 bicentenary of the birth of Charles Baudelaire, celebrating the poet’s importance and influence on modernity. We invite you to enjoy these recordings, and we hope that you will participate in future Bandy Center events, including in-person consultation of our collections. In the interim, the technology that has allowed us to pursue online discussions ensures that we can continue our longstanding efforts to bring the Bandy collections to the world.
