This is the third event celebrating the digital exhibit Reclaiming the Death of a Beautiful Woman: Female Voices Adapting the Lady of Shalott

Ann Howey, associate professor of English language and literature at Brock University, will speak on:

  • The popularity of the figure of the dead woman in history
  • How popularity is contested and resisted by adaptations (often letting the Lady of Shalott live) 
  • How adaptations situate their resistance in terms of storytelling, as in drawing attention to the narratives we consume.

The event sponsored by the Rossell Hope Robbins Library and Arthuriana.
