EAC Research Seminar | Weds 14 November

Next week's visiting speaker is Richard Hornsey, Senior Lecturer at UWE. His first book was The Spiv and the Architect: Unruly Life in Post-war London (U. Minnesota Press, 2010), reviewed by David Alderson (UoM) in Textual Practice here. His main research focus is on urban cultural history, & his latest work it about rhythm, movement and social control in 1930s London. It is organised around a reading of the Tube Map, the A to Z street atlas and the London Monopoly board.

The paper starts a few minutes after 5pm in Samuel Alexander A113. David Alderson will be chairing.

The EAC Research Seminar welcomes staff and postgraduates with an interest in the topic from across the School of Arts, Languages and Cultures. The paper is followed by a discussion, and then most often by further talk at the pub.
