Living Literature: The Great Gatsby

Professor Sarah Churchwell
(Chair of Public Understanding of the Humanities, School of Advanced Study)

Travel back in time with us to 1922, and explore the tastes, sights, smells and sounds of Gatsby's lost world, with guidance from experts in the history of F. Scott Fitzgerald and Prohibition-era New York.
Audiences will come away with renewed understanding of how 'The Great Gatsby' reflected and reimagined society, and why its iconic parties mean more than we might think.
