Event Details

Why does engagement with art matter? As Timothy Mathews retires from his long career as Professor of Comparative Criticism in the French Department at UCL, this symposium celebrates the diversity of his approach to addressing this question in his teaching and research. Tim is known for his contributions to Comparative Literature, Translation Studies, a broadly creative approach to writing criticism, and, of course, French Studies.
Tim’s colleagues and collaborators from across these fields gather to present short papers and other interventions expressing their own view of Tim’s work and related topics and questions. Contributions range from the affective to the ethical to the theoretical, including their practical applications, and dialogue and discussion - always a feature of Tim’s work - is warmly encouraged.
Guests are welcome to attend. Please register via this page.
