Please consider joining us for the 11th in our occasional "Rebel Academics" lecture series, where we invite local or regional scholars to give a talk on unusual, obscure, or offbeat topics. Refreshments and mingling at 6:30, with the talk from 7-8pm. Thanks to the UWG School of the Arts for co-sponsoring this talk.
UWG English Professor Josh Masters will explore themes in Post Apocalyptic Literature and share some theories explaining it's recent popularity.
We will also be exhibiting an exceptional collection of modern first editions of books from the genre, generously provided for our viewing enjoyment by local book collector Gilbert Huey. These books will not be for sale.
About the Lecture Series:
The Rebel Academics Lecture Series aims to provide a forum for local artists, free-thinkers, academics, poets, activists, and writers to offer presentations on unusual or fringe topics not typically available in our local community. The lectures are open to the public and are free of charge.
