Dear friends and colleagues,
The University of Notre Dame London Global Gateway warmly welcomes you to an upcoming G.K. Chesterton lecture at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 14. The talk will finish at 7:30 p.m. and will be followed immediately by a reception. The event will take place at the University of Notre Dame’s Fischer Hall (1-4 Suffolk Street, London SW1Y 4HG).
G.K. Chesterton spent part of the fall term in 1930 at Notre Dame’s home campus in South Bend, Indiana, during which time he gave 36 lectures in the Washington Hall auditorium with an average attendance of 500 people at each. (We should hope to have as many at Melanie McDonagh’s lecture!) At that time, Chesterton also received an honorary degree from the University of Notre Dame.
In the wake of the resurgent interest in his literary work, and because of his connections to Notre Dame, the London Global Gateway wishes to open an ongoing public dialogue about G.K. Chesterton, his work, and contributions to christianity, beginning with this lecture, presented by journalist Melanie McDonagh, entitled G.K Chesterton: Polemicist…and Theologian.
