Monticello-Union Township Library - Putting King Arthur on the Map

Bamburgh

MONTICELLO — The Monticello-Union Township Public Library will present “Putting King Arthur on the Map,” a virtual presentation hosted via YouTube and shared to Facebook.

It will be 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 22.

The legend of King Arthur is rooted in real places across Britain, from the rough coasts of Tintagel, to Stonehenge, the Tower of London, Dover Castle, and more.

Professor Molly Martin’s talk will focus on how King Arthur, Queen Guinevere, and the Knights of the Round Table come to life in the cities, castles, and churches of Britain, both in medieval literature and today. The prohram will explore and map the legendary king.

Martin is professor and chair of English at the University of Indianapolis, where she teaches medieval literature, Arthurian literature, linguistics and writing, among other subjects. She has published two books on Arthurian literature: “Vision and Gender in Malory’s Morte Darthur and “Castles and Space in Malory’s Morte Darthur.”

She is the associate editor of the journal Arhuriana. Her current work looks at ghosts in the Arthurian legend. This presentation will be hosted live via YouTube and shared on Facebook.
