Lectures and seminars
Will Self and Enid Blyton are not often mentioned in the same sentence, but this lecture will reveal that they have an unexpected interest in common: scale. By a happy biographical accident, Dr Walsh is well qualified to expound upon the particular focus of this common interest, which is a rather eccentric model village called Bekonscot.

Their negotiations with questions of scale in their stories provide a point of departure for his own concern with the distinctive qualities and limitations of narrative form.
