The Architecture of Hurry

Richard Dennis gives keynote address in Munich … and more on Gissing

The Architecture of Hurry

Professor Richard Dennis gave the opening Keynote Lecture at an interdisciplinary conference on Cityscapes in History: Creating the Urban Experience, held at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich on July 29th. The conference involved architects, art historians, practising photographers, planners, urban historians and historical geographers. Richard's lecture was on The Architecture of Hurry, a phrase from E.M. Forster's 'Howards End' which offers scope for thinking about hurry and speed (and the differences between them) at a variety of spatial and temporal scales.

Richard has also been active on the Gissing front, collaborating in a series of papers on Gissing's novels, Workers in the Dawn and The Nether World, which made up one session at this year's Literary London conference, held in Senate House, University of London, in July. And, with Miles Irving, he has also contributed an original map of Arthur Golding's London which features in a new edition of Workers in the Dawn recently reviewed in the Times Literary Supplement.
