London, 12 February 2019

We will be holding two events at the Senate House in London. The first will be a roundtable event bringing together scholars, translators and publishers to discuss the practicalities and pitfalls of publishing Decadent texts in translation for a contemporary market. Attendance at this event is limited and by invitation only – if you are interested in participating, please contact us via email.

At 7pm on 12 February 2019 we will also be holding a public event in the Chancellor’s Hall at Senate House: Decadence in Performance.

There will be readings in English and French from the work of Charles Baudelaire, Paul Verlaine, Stéphane Mallarmé and others. And if you want to find out more about who these writers were, there will be short talks by experts on the background to the Decadent movement and its influence on British writers and artists. The evening will be enlivened by musical interludes featuring performances by professional singers.

Check back on this page for more information about speakers and readings closer to the time.

This event is open to the public and anyone may attend, but space is limited, so we ask that you book in advance via the Senate House Website here.
