The Northcliffe Lectures in Literature 2012 Distances – Imagining Dreyfus
Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre |
Gower St | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom
Admission: Free of charge
Professor Michael Wood, Princeton University
- Venue Change Announcement - This lecture will now take place in the Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre*
Each lecture in the series of three Distances lectures is self-contained, not requiring knowledge of the others, but the three are linked by a continuing question: the relationship of literature to history at moments and in texts where that relationship has been seen to be in crisis.
The second lecture in the Distances series, ‘Imagining Dreyfus’, will explore Marcel Proust’s shifting perceptions of the infamous case. He saw it finally not only a determining moment in French history and in the history of anti-Semitism, but a sort of fable about justice - its general unavailability and its idiosyncratic re-assertions of itself.
