This spring, we are excited to partner with LSU-Shreveport for a series of free lectures at our Broadmoor Branch and Hamilton/South Caddo Branch! The MLA Lecture Series will feature LSU-Shreveport faculty members presenting their expertise and research in presentations followed by questions. All of these lectures will be free and open to the public.
This lecture series will highlight the Master of Arts in Liberal Arts degree program at LSU-Shreveport. Each lecture in the series will cover a different interesting topic by a faculty member in that program. In March, the MLA Showcase Lectures will be held at the Broadmoor Branch, 1212 Captain Shreve Dr. The lectures in April will be at our Hamilton/South Caddo Branch, 2111 Bert Kouns Industrial Loop.
Come and hear Dr. Alexander Mikaberidze present on how Iran was depicted in early modern European travel literature, or learn how the writings of Herodotus, Dionyisus Thrax, and Quintilian are still relevant to today’s readers with Dr. Thomas Dubose.
Dr. Claire Joa will present “Sentiment Contagion on Twitter,” which asks the question, “how do legacy media and nontraditional media interact with each other and lead public sentiment in social media?” Dr. Samuel Cannon will present the final lecture, “Star Wars in South America: Galactic Rebellion under the Pinochet Military Dictatorship.”
You can find out more information about the Master of Arts in Liberal Arts program at LSU-S on their website or Facebook.
