We are delighted that you have joined our group of dedicated readers of Proust's In Search of Lost Time. You may proceed at your own pace and have unlimited access to the lectures, live webcams, and all supplementary material.

When you have a second, we'd be grateful if you'd let us know how you found us. We hope you enjoy the course and all the supplementary material and website offerings.

Live Webcams

We offer live webcams where I will do my best to answer any questions that you may have related to Proust's life and works. Thank you for all the interesting and provocative questions submitted for the past webcams. Please continue to send me questions in advance and we will try to select the ones that might be of interest to all. We will also answer as many questions as possible if you submit them during the webcam. Questions that cannot be answered due to time constraints will be carried over to the next webcam.

Please remember that even if you are not able to participate in the live webcam, you can submit a question in advance and then look at my attempt to answer later when the webcam is posted on our website.
