Roundtable Discussion of Game of Thrones
When: Wednesday, April 9th, 3:30-5:00pm
Where: Graham movie viewing room
Food and drink will be provided.
Why has a television series set in an imaginary medieval
world become so popular with a 21st-century American
audience? What might Game of Thrones tell us about
our own world, our own culture, and today’s historical
moment? What questions do you have and what do you
want to investigate further about the show?
Come to hear and contribute to an open student-faculty
conversation about such topics as gender, history, religion,
magic, race, war, disability, empire and more in Game of
Thrones. Opening remarks from Cory Wade, Alex Muth,
Jackie Hendricks, Julian Castillo, Michelle Burnham, Sally
Vance-Trembath, and Marshall Hammons.

and Renaissance Studies Program, and the American
