Stuart N Clarke’s Lecture will take place at Birkbeck, room MAL B20

Venue: Birkbeck’s Malet Street campus, the entrance is round the back from Malet Street, in Torrington Square, WC1E 7HX. Doors will open at 1.30pm and the lecture is at 2pm. Please allow a good ten minutes to find the lecture theatre which is in the basement B20. There will be members of the Executive Council to guide attendees and signs. Please also find a link to a location map (the Main building is number 1 on the map):

Immediately following the lecture from 3.30pm, the Reception (drinks, cake, raffle and book stall) will take place in the dining-room of the Tavistock Hotel at 48-55 Tavistock Square WC1H 9EH. 

The hotel has very generously provided their services.

We sincerely apologise for the late change of venue, but this is owing to the boycott of University of London administrative spaces, specifically Senate House, which academic and professional associations are supporting. 

This is the statement on the opening page of the boycott: ‘I pledge to not attend or organise any events at the University of London central administration (including Senate House, Stewart House, the Warburg Institute, the Institute of Historical Research, the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies and Student Central) until all outsourced workers (including cleaners, receptionists, security officers, catering staff, porters, audio-visual workers, gardeners and maintenance workers) are made direct employees of the University of London on equal terms and conditions with other directly employed staff.’

Almost 300 academics, 40 politicians, the NUS and many university union branches are supporting the call to boycott all events at the University of London central administration, including Senate House. Having been contacted by several academics and different organisations, we felt it appropriate to join other literary and academic societies to respond and move our venue, and we are grateful to the IES to be able to do this. We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
