Our dear colleague Tony Fairman turns 75!! PENTAX Image

Many of you will know Tony Fairman from his work on Late Modern English lower-class writing, the so-called letters of artisans and the labouring poor. For a few years now, Mikko, Mo and Anita have had the pleasure of working with Tony more closely on this particular topic.

One of the reasons for organising this particular conference is to toast to Tony’s 75th birthday and to his important contribution to the study of Late Modern English. The celebrations will take place during the reception on Wednesday, 11 June 2014.
