The 2013 Annual Hazlitt Lecture and the 12th Hazlitt Day School, organized by Gregory Dart and Uttara Natarajan, will this year be held in conjunction for the first time. Both events are dedicated to a common theme, ‘Hazlitt and the Theatre’, and will be taking place at University College London on Saturday 14 September.
The Lecture, entitled ‘Hazlitt and Edmund Kean’, will be delivered by Peter Thomson, Emeritus Professor of Drama at the University of Exeter, from 4pm in the Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre, UCL. Attendance is free of charge.
The Day School (for which there is a small fee – £20/£15) takes place in the Old Refectory, in UCL’s Wilkins Building, and it precedes the Lecture from 9.30am-3.30pm. It provides a rare opportunity for readers and scholars of Hazlitt to explore a whole range of topics relating to ‘Hazlitt and the Theatre’, as well as to meet each other and to exchange ideas.
