Dr Matthew Beaumont, UCL English
The nightwalker – whether vagrant, pleasure seeker, night worker, artist or just a curious academic – discovers a different kind of city beyond the everyday. Night walking has been celebrated, feared and outlawed throughout history. Charles Dickens, Thomas De Quincey, Oliver Goldsmith, Samuel Johnson and William Wordsworth all relished the alternative consciousness of encountering the neglected and forgotten aspects of the metropolis. Join Matthew Beaumont and the bohemian poets of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in the shadows to explore the dark side.
This event of part of the UCL Festival of the Arts.
