Dr. Gillian Overing will discuss Beowulf in the ZSR Library’s Auditorium at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 28. She’ll give a brief overview of the poem’s historical and cultural background and consider how the themes and questions raised by this ancient Germanic poem resonate with a contemporary audience. To register for the event, go to the PDC website.
Overing’s lecture will tie in with Benjamin Bagby’s Beowulf performance, which is part of the Secrest Artists Series on Oct. 4.
