It gives us great pleasure to invite you to the launch of the Bangor University Centre for Arthurian Studies on Friday 20 January 2017 at 4:00pm in the Eric Sunderland Lecture Theatre (MALT), Bangor University.
Following introductory remarks by Dr Aled Llion Jones (School of Welsh), on 'Arthur in Wales – Arthur in Bangor', Emeritus Professor P.J.C. Field (School of English literature) will deliver a brief address entitled 'Malory's Round Table'.
The main lecture, 'Portable Arthur: Why medieval legends are still relevant to us' will be given by Professor Raluca Radulescu (School of English Literature and founding director of the Centre).
The launch marks the beginning of the Wales 2017 ‘Year of Legends’.
You are invited to join us after the talks for refreshments in the Shankland Reading Room, Main Library. There will be an opportunity to view an exhibition of rare Arthurian books in the Council Corridor, as well as the new online international exhibition of Arthurian materials.
We look forward to welcoming you.
