Broadmoor Branch partners with LSU-Shreveport for MLA Lecture Series

MLA Showcase Lectures

This fall, we are excited to partner with LSU-Shreveport for a series of free lectures at the Broadmoor Branch! Explore ancient science, discover the dark phenomenon of serial killers, and learn about the animals in Milton’s “Paradise Lost” on Mondays at 6 p.m. this September and October.

The MLA Lecture Series will feature LSU-Shreveport staff presenting their expertise and research in presentations followed by questions. Each lecture in the four-part series will cover a different interesting topic. The first week will feature “Did Ancient Science Die with Hypatia?” presented by Dr. Matyas Buzgo.

The second week, Dr. Elisabeth Liebert will discuss the significance of various animals in Milton’s “Paradise Lost” during the lecture, “The Elephant in Eden.” The following weeks feature a look at the phenomenon of serial killers with Dr. Christopher Hale and the “Thank You for Your Service” phenomenon and how it contributes to perpetual warfare with Dr. Evan Reibsome.

All of these lectures are free and open to the public! Come and join us for a fascinating look at these interesting topics.

All of the lectures will be held at 6 p.m. on Mondays at the Broadmoor Branch, 1212 Captain Shreve Dr.
