The 2021 Hazlitt Society lecture and the 19th Hazlitt Day School, organized by Gregory Dart, Uttara Natarajan, Philipp Hunnekuhl and James Whitehead, will be held at University College London on Saturday 18th September 2021.
The annual lecture, entitled ‘Hazlitt and Prejudice’, will be given by Dr. Freya Johnston (University Lecturer and Tutorial Fellow in English at St. Anne’s College, University of Oxford) at 4pm in the Gustave Tuck Theatre, UCL.
The day school precedes the annual lecture from 10am – 4pm.
