Preceded by Paul Hamilton speaking about Hazlitt’s politics
at Conway Hall, Red Lion Square, London WC1
Saturday 17th September 2011 at 2.00pm
Paul Hamilton, Professor of English at Queen Mary, University of London, who will speak first for 20 minutes on Hazlitt’s political essays. This will be followed by 40 minutes from Tariq Ali, followed in turn by a question and answer session.
Tariq Ali has been a leading figure of the international left since the 1960s. He has been writing for the Guardian since the 1970s. He is a long-standing editor of the New Left Review and a political commentator published on every continent.
Professor Hamilton’s research is primarily on Enlightenment and Romantic thought and literature, and he is particularly interested in the relations between literature, philosophy and political theory. He is on the board of the Hazlitt Review, and has written and published extensively on Hazlitt.
After the lecture, the Committee would like to invite all members who attend to join us for tea or coffee in the foyer of Conway Hall after the lecture. Food beforehand will be available for purchase either in the foyer from 12.30 or very close by in the pleasant open air café in the square.
If you would like to attend, please email Helen Hodgson at lecture@williamhazlitt.org or print out and return this linked form. We will not be issuing tickets, but we do need to have an idea of the numbers involved.
As in previous years, the lecture is free of charge, so please bring guests. There is, however, an optional subscription for membership of the Society of £10 (£5 for those under 25) for the year September 2011 to September 2012.
