The TV phenomenon Game of Thrones is the most popular show in the history of HBO. Its cultural impact creates an opportunity for the public to reflect upon the intersection between history, film, and literature as instruments for contemplating human behavior and the causes and circumstances that provoke social disturbances. This program includes participatory round-tables, interactive discussions and multi-media forums that will stimulate debate and discussion on social interchange, acts of violence, the over-all power structure in the historical landscape of an imaginary Middle Ages, and the importance of media literacy in deciphering the imaginary landscape in its televised form.

The symposium will take place Saturday, September 19th, 2015 from 10:30am – 2:30pm and is FREE and open to all. To reserve your seat, please click here.
