Tuesday 23 October 2012, 5.30PM
Speaker(s): Professor Michael Sheringham, All Souls College, Oxford
The lecture will be followed by a workshop on Wednesday 24th October at 1pm in the Treehouse, Berrick Saul Building. All are welcome to attend.
Michael Sheringham is a pioneer in the field of everyday life studies. His earlier scholarship has addressed Beckett and Breton, as well as the whole rich tradition of French autobiography; more recently, his focus has shifted to archival memory. His "Everyday Life: Theories and Practices from Surrealism to the Present" (Oxford, 2006) is the most comprehensive, and certainly the most elegant, account of the French school of everyday life studies available.
Location: Bowland Auditorium, Berrick Saul Building
Admission: All welcome
