Title: "There's something about Arthur"
Contact: Dottie, 6033826733
Location: Colby Memorial Library
Description: Since his creation in the Middle Ages, tales of King Arthur are perennially popular, and though interest waxes and wanes, he is still a recognizable figure in not only the halls of academia but also pop culture.  Why are people today, in our modern, democratic society interested in this old-fashioned English king from centuries ago?  This lecture, by Dr. John Chandler, will briefly trace some of the highlights of Arthur's long history and suggest some reasons why his story continues to entertain audiences generation after generation.
