Please all take note of the exciting topic we've just arranged for April, and mark your diaries: Zola's Nana and L'Assommoir: A Voyage to the Underworld of Nineteenth-Century Paris, facilitated by Kit Yee Wong of Birkbeck. Stay tuned for another equally enticing topic that will be announced shortly for our last meeting of the academic year.

Hello all- please mark your calendars for 24 February, our next meeting of Navigate, facilitated by Megha Agarwal of Goldsmiths on the theme of epic journeys into the Underworld. Hope to see you there!

Hello all, the materials for the group are now available above. The PDF is a mix of text, image, and the original Vogue layouts, all of which will complement Frith's presentation on the 27th. If you have any trouble downloading the file, feel free to message me with your email address, and I will send it as an attachment. Please be aware the materials contain some graphic images.

'That one word was enough; flocking ideas arranged themselves in the right order, vague tendencies crystallised into a solid plan. As if it were a kind of long-drawn echo, I heard a voice like mine begin to say:
"A Ford! That's the car to climb the new Hazarejat road in Afghanistan! In Iran too, one should travel in one's own car."'

Hello everyone, I've just added the reading for download on the page above. It looks really excellent and sure to provoke some interesting conversation. I hope some of you will be able to come out in two weeks' time to discuss these selections with David Miller, who will give a short presentation. Feel free to contact me if you have any issues downloading the files. Bit of wine and snacks will be provided. -Alexis

I wish I could join you but I am teaching on Tuesday evenings, have fun!

I'm looking forward to seeing some of you tomorrow evening for our first meeting of the autumn term to discuss Anna Brownell Jameson. We'll be heading out for a drink after as well, all are welcome.

See you soon, Alexis

Hello all, 

I've just uploaded a few discussion questions above. Feel free to have a glance at them during reading, or to write your own questions to bring along.

Best, Alexis
