Rountable Discussion of Game of Thrones

Wednesday, April 9th, 2014
Graham Movie Viewing Room

Food and Drinks 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. Sponsored by the English Department, the Medieval and Renaissance Studies Program, and the American Studies Pathway.
