Prof Martin Stannard lectures on Waugh in America

On 3 March a lecture in the Hall supported by the International Anthony Burgess Foundation was delivered by Martin Stannard, Professor of Modern English Literature at Leicester University, and Co-Executive Editor of OUP's 42-volume scholarly edition of The Complete Works of Evelyn Waugh.

The lectre was entitled 'No Abiding City: Evelyn Waugh and America' and it provided a diverting and enlightening account of Waugh's several lecturing tours to the USA. The setting for the lecture was also appropriate, Waugh having been a regular visitor and a benefactor to Campion Hall in the days of its celebrated master, Martin D'Arcy.
