From January to April, the School of English staff hosts a series of lectures which adopt a thematic approach to the study of literature. The chosen theme varies from year to year, offering members of the public the opportunity to consider English literary works from a variety of fresh and thought-provoking perspectives. Themes covered in recent years have included Fear in Literature, Cities in Literature, and Literature and Revolution.

Further details for the upcoming theme and booking details will be available shortly from the Trinity Oscar Wilde website:
