London-Paris Romanticism Symposium (Paris, France)
Judith Thompson will be giving a keynote lecture on Thelwall’s French Connection: Les Voix des Girouettes at the Paris-London Romanticism Symposium, whose topic this year is Oaths, Odes and Orations. Extending the intellectual cooperation that has always been a feature of both the Paris-London group and Thelwall Studies, Thompson’s lecture will cover a little known episode of Thelwall’s life, his visits to post-revolutionary France between 1814 and 1819, and the networks he cultivated among revolutionary philosophes and materialist practitioners there.
6-8 August 2020 [CANCELLED]
