Please find below the programme for our upcoming workshop on ""Modernism, History, Thought," the first event for our three-year project on "Tradition and the Modern." The workshop features as a public lecture by noted feminist critic Luce Irigaray on the first day.
(And for those of you lucky enough to be in the area on the 27th of May, the Centre is hosting Nobel laureate Nadine Gordimer, who will give a reading from her new book of short stories Loot, followed by a discussion with Professor Hermione Lee of the University of Oxford and a reception and book signing. This event will take place at 6 pm in the Brunei Gallery Lecture Theatre at SOAS and is open to all on a first-come, first-served basis).
To register for the workshop, which will take place in Foster Court 114 at UCL, please write to Gillian Hudson via email. (There are, as usual, no fees or forms.)
Please let Gillian know if you'd like to come to the workshop dinner on the 29th. This costs £5, payable on the first day of the
workshop by cash or cheque (a sumptuous feast at a vegetarian Indian restaurant).
We look forward to seeing you at this or one of the other Centre events this term!
