London lectures on 'A Streetcar Named Desire'

Student News Feed - 14 February, 2017 - 17:27
by Susan Greenhalgh.  

 
The trip to City Temple in London for a day of lectures about 'A Streetcar Named Desire' is now available.
The date of the trip is Wednesday 8th March.
The cost of the trip is £45.

For this price you get a coach to and from the destination and ticket for the lectures. This would work out cheaper than you individually buying train tickets (and there is nothing like a coach journey for good old camaraderie!)


The itinerary is as follows:


11.00 am A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE IN ITS TIME: SOME SIGNIFICANT CONTEXTS
Dr Andy Haley
11.45 am BREAK

12.00 pm MEMORY AND THE PAST IN A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE
Dr Fiona Tolan
12.45 pm BREAK

1.45 pm ‘EPISODIC AND JERKY’? THE DRAMATIC STRUCTURE OF A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE
Dr Viv Thomas
2.30 pm BREAK

2.45 pm BLANCHE DUBOIS AS A TRAGIC FIGURE
Dr Paul McDonald

3.30 pm END


Last year we all went for lunch on the green- rather nice.


There are 24 tickets available and this trip is open to all English Literature and Language/Literature students, so purchase promptly!
