Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

Professor of the history of English at Oxford University Lynda Mugglestone explains why dictionaries are more than a simple list of words; they are human products and reflect the dominant social and cultural assumptions of the time in which they were written.
