'Not Dead Yet': Lively Ladies and Elaine after Tennyson

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. 

Thursday, June 24 at 3:00pm to 4:30pm
