Tuesday 8 December 2015, 5.00PM to 6.30pm
Speaker(s): Cynthia Wall (University of Virginia)
Grammars of Approach examines changes in perspective in spatial design, language, and narrative across the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. In architecture, the term ‘approach’ changed from a verb to a noun, denoting the drive from the lodge at the entrance of an estate, which was designed ‘to form new combinations on every movement of the spectator’ (J. C. Loudon, 1806). Related changes of ‘approach’ in the grammatical and typographical landscapes can help contextualize narrative innovations such as free indirect discourse.
