    How might the arts help 'reset' the direction of the human compass in our difficult times? Is an instrumentalist approach to the arts and culture ever a good thing? Knighted for his services to literature and Poet Laureate from 1999 – 2009, Sir Andrew Motion proposes answers to these questions, with reference to his own education as well as poems by Alice Oswald, Seamus Heaney and William Wordsworth. This is a part of the series of lectures held in partnership with the 2012 City of London Festival. The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/resetting-the-human-compass-the-use-and-value-of-the-arts All our lectures are available for free download from the Gresham College website, in video, audio or text formats: gresham.ac.uk Gresham College professors and guest speakers have been giving free public lectures in central London since 1597.

        From the impressions of his first youthful visit, to his mature years when all doors opened for him, London was an important backdrop to much of Conan Doyle's life and work. From the Sherlock Holmes stories to The Lost World (in this, the 100th anniversary year of Professor Challenger's first great adventure) this lecture examines some of the locations which influenced him. It will also touch on some of his lesser known works and include the place which perhaps meant more to him than any other in London, and to which he returned in his writing throughout his life. The transcript and downloadable versions of the lecture are available from the Gresham College website: http://www.gresham.ac.uk/lectures-and-events/a-stout-heart-in-the-great-cesspool-arthur-conan-doyle-and-london All our lectures are available for free download from the Gresham College website, in video, audio or text formats: gresham.ac.uk Gresham College professors and guest speakers have been giving free public lectures in central London since 1597.

            Studying for an English degree at Goldsmiths is an interdisciplinary and invigorating experience, and we're one of the top 200 departments worldwide. We are distinctive in the intellectual range of our teaching and research. Our main field of critical inquiry extends from Old English literature to twenty-first century literatures in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian. Our earliest focus is on Classical literature and our latest on Creative Writing. In this new writing, our conspicuous strength springs from those staff and students who contribute directly to some of the literatures studied. We read the literatures of yesterday and today, and write literature for tomorrow. http://www.gold.ac.uk/ecl/ http://www.gold.ac.uk/
