Uitnodiging voor onze volgende bijeenkomst 
Invitation to our next meeting

 
Of Mr. Pecksniff’s architectural doings, nothing was clearly known, except that he had never designed of built anything; but it was generally understood that his knowledge of the science was almost awful in its profundity. His genius lay in ensnaring parents and guardians, and pocketing premiums. (from Martin Chuzzlewit)


Zeer geachte Dickensians,

Het doet ons genoegen U uit te nodigen voor de zomer bijeenkomst van de Haarlem Branch.
U wordt verwacht op zaterdag 8 juni om 16.00 uur in Kraantje Lek (tel. 023-524.1266) waar zalen voor U gereserveerd zijn. Voor de nieuwkomers: Kraantje Lek ligt aan de Duinlustweg 22 te Overveen. Vanaf station Overveen 20 minuten wandelen, maar vanaf station Haarlem rijden er taxi’s.

Vanmiddag zal voor ons spreken Dr. B.P. Moore en wel over het onderwerp:

Dickens and Architecture

Ben Moore is Assistant Professor in English Literature at the University of Amsterdam. Previously he taught Victorian literature at Cardiff University (2015-16) and gave various literature courses at the University of Manchester. His research has focused mainly on modernity, cities, vision, space and architecture in the nineteenth century, and he is currently working on a monograph based on his PhD research, Invisible Architecture: Ideologies of Space in the Nineteenth-Century City, which discusses Gogol, Gaskell, Dickens and Zola, and theorists including Walter Benjamin and Henri Lefebvre. He has published work on Charles Dickens, Elizabeth Gaskell, Benjamin Disraeli, Charles Kingsley, Victorian childhood, the writing of Rem Koolhaas and Walter Benjamin, among other topics.

Het bestuur verwacht als vanouds een overweldigende opkomst want wie van ons heeft er nu niet ooit een doosje met mathematische instrumenten uitgereikt gekregen en is daarvan nog steeds in de war.

Na afloop is er de borrel en het diner. Een driegangen menu kost bij Kraantje Lek ongeveer € 21,00 (excl. wijn). Het wordt op prijs gesteld indien U kunt berichten of U aan het diner deelneemt. Opgaven dienaangaande bij Uw secretaris. Via de gegevens in het briefhoofd of telefonisch: 06-466.57.432

Yours in Fellowship,

P. de Groot (secretaris)

Dear Dickensians,

We are happy to invite you to the summer meeting of the Haarlem Branch. You are expected on Saturday 8 June in Kraantje Lek (tel 023-5241266) where rooms are reserved for you. For the newcomers: Kraantje Lek is situated at the Duinlustweg 22 in Overveen. About 20 minutes walking distance from Overveen station, but you can take a taxi from Haarlem central station.

This afternoon Dr. B.P. Moore will hold a lecture about the following subject:

The board as usual expects an overwhelming attendance, for which of us has ever been given a small box with mathematical instruments and is still confused about this.

After the lecture there will be a drink and dinner. A three-course dinner costs about € 21.00 at Kraantje Lek (excluding whine). It is appreciated that you inform us whether you will participate in the dinner. For this you can give your name to your secretary.
