The School of English Research Colloquium was inaugurated in 2013, with the aim of bringing together distinguished scholars in arts, culture, and literature to the University of St Andrews for a series of public lectures and debates. The School continues to carry forward the mission of the Research Colloquia, and we are grateful for the School’s generous support as well as for the support of Theoria: St Andrews Critical Theory Group.


Marc Ngui is a Canadian fine artist and professional illustrator. Marc’s Drawings from A Thousand Plateaus have been exhibited in art galleries across Canada.
