Durham University has announced that Martin Stannard, Evelyn Waugh’s biographer and co-executive editor of the Complete Works of Evelyn Waugh, will lecture there early next year. His topic will be “Evelyn Waugh, America and Catholicism”. This will probably touch on Waugh’s 1949 article in Life Magazine entitled “The American Epoch in the Catholic Church” (EAR, pp. 377-88) as well his 1948 and 1949 trips to North America researching that article. The lecture will be delivered at Ushaw College, Durham University at 17:30p on Tuesday, 12 February 2019. This is part of the Ushaw Lecture Series sponsored by the university’s Department of Theology and Religion.
