Biography: Joshua Smith is a third year SGSAH-funded doctoral candidate at the University of Stirling. His research examines political reading and library politics at British subscription libraries in the early nineteenth century, particularly the Bristol Library Society and the Leighton Library, Dunblane. He is also a team member on the AHRC-funded project ‘Books and Borrowing: An Analysis of Scottish Borrowers’ Registers, 1750-1830’, jointly based at the Universities of Stirling and Glasgow, which examines the borrowing records of eighteen historic libraries in Scotland over the course of the long eighteenth century.
