Event Details

The William Bunge Memorial Lecture for 2017 will be given by Iain Sinclair.

Stretched City: Pushing Against the Current in the Last London

Date: Wednesday 21 June 21 6-8pm
Venue: Darwin Lecture Theatre, University College London, Gower Street, London WC1 6XA
Price: £10 / £5

Iain Sinclair explores the condition of perceived groundlessness in the stretched city that London has become, by way of memory raids, recovered texts, visionary encounters and the constant pressure to step beyond our knowledge, beyond our restricted permissions. His project: to make London a map of what we need, what we love.

The lecture is held in memory of the work of William Bunge, pioneer of expeditionary geography and author of Fitzgerald: diary of a revolution. It also inaugurates a series exploring what it means to be a Londoner today, organised by Livingmaps Network as part of an initiative to create a Citizens Atlas of London.

Non-fiction books, exploring the myth and matter of London, include Lights Out for the Territory, London Orbital and Edge of the Orison. He edited London, City of Disappearances, which was published in October 2006. More recently, he has published Hackney, That Rose-Red Empire (2009), Ghostmilk (2011), American Smoke (2013) and an account of a one-day walk around the orbital railway, London Overground (2015).
