Architectures of Hurry, disorder on the Underground, and more Gissing

16 May 2018

Pursuing Richard Dennis’s enthusiasms

Architectures of Hurry, disorder on the Underground, and more Gissing

Professor Richard Dennis (with Phillip Mackintosh and Deryck Holdsworth) has co-edited and contributed two chapters to a newly published volume, Architectures of Hurry - Mobilities, Cities and Modernity (Routledge, 2018).

Meanwhile he maintains his enthusiasms for the London Underground, with papers on:

  • Lighting the Underground, 1863-1914, in the latest issue of Histoire Urbaine.
  • Bombs on the nineteenth-century Underground, for a May 18 Birkbeck conference on, ‘Going Underground: Design, Reputation, and Disorder in the Subterranean Infrastructure of the Global City’.

Richard’s devotion to studies of George Gissing has also hardly waned, with:

  • A walking tour of Chelsea designed for The Gissing Journal,
  • Contributions to a new book on Gissing's World within the World, a collection of essays on Gissing's novel Born in Exile,
  • The keynote paper at a symposium on 29 May at the Institute of Historical Research on 'The City - Myth and Materiality'.
