The University of Hartford Humanities Center Lecture Series “Our Monsters, Ourselves” continues Tuesday, April 18 at 7:30 p.m. in the Dana 201 (Mali 1) Lecture Hall.

The lecture series is FREE and OPEN TO ALL.

The ninth lecture in the series, titled “Serial Killers in Ancient Greece and Rome,” will be delivered by Debbie Felton PhD, Professor of Classics at UMass Amherst.

In this talk, Dr. Felton will examine the likelihood that stories of familiar monsters as well as of certain human characters from ancient literature were based on an understanding of real-life serial mutilation murders.

She holds a PhD in Classics from UNC Chapel Hill and researches folklore in classical literature, with particular attention to the supernatural and the monstrous.

The Lecture Series was developed and is led by Amanda Walling PhD, Associate Professor in the department of English and Modern Languages (A&S).

The Humanities Center at the University of Hartford supports interdisciplinary scholarship focusing on the humanities through art, science, technology, media, music, psychology, history, film, philosophy and literature.
