The Treadwell's Papers

There's an independent bookshop in London called Treadwell's, owned by a very dear friend of mine, Christina. It used to be based in Covent Garden, but is now in Bloomsbury. Over the last eight years I have presented a variety of papers there and I was recently asked if I could compile an index of titles with dates. 

So, for those who might also be interested, here is a list of the 'Treadwell's Papers', beginning with the first series of essays entitled Visions of Excess: A Secret History of Philosophy, from 2004:

I: Sade: The Impossible One (23-02-04)
II: Nietzsche: The Anti-Christ (01-03-04)
III: Bataille: The Accursed One (08-03-04)
IV: Foucault: The Masked Philosopher (15-03-04)
V: Deleuze and Guattari: The Schizonomads (22-03-04)
VI: Among the Ruins: Nihilism, Culture, Art and Technology (29-03-04)

Sex/Magic: Essays on the Erotic and the Esoteric, the Pornographic and the Pagan (2005):

I: Re-dreaming the Dark: Sex, Magic, and Politics (14-02-05)

Finally, and most recently, there have been four one-off presentations (although the three papers given in 2012 have all spun out of a wider on-going project, entitled Sex/Object and so betray a certain sense of continuity and cross-over of materials):

Elements of Gothic Queerness in 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' (18-05-11)
Sun-Fucked: On the Dangers and Pleasures of Solar Sexuality (18-01-12)
Floraphilia: The Revenge of the Flowers (19-06-12)
The Pygmalion Syndrome: Sex-Dolls, Solipsism, and The Love of Statues (24-10-12)
