Talk on the Guises of Love: ‘The Friendship Between Iris Murdoch And Philippa Foot’

The Iris Murdoch Archives in Kingston University's Special Collections are now a world-class resource on one of the most revered British novelists of the twentieth century. The acquisition of 270 letters from Murdoch to her friend, the philosopher Philippa Foot, catalogues a friendship that endured estrangement and heartache, yet lasted sixty years. The following events are connected with the project, 'Iris Murdoch and Philippa Foot: an Arc of Friendship', supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and run by the Centre for Iris Murdoch Studies at Kingston University.

Speaker: Peter Conradi (professor emeritus, Kingston University) author of Iris Murdoch: a Life (2001) and A Very English Hero: The Making of Frank Thompson (2012)

Date: Wednesday 15 May, 7pm
Venue: Room 0003, John Galsworthy Building, Penrhyn Road campus
