Game of Thrones’ Historical Landscape: From Vikings and Mongols to Wildlings and Dothraki

September 25, 2018 @ 7:30 pm

The Whallonsburg Grange Hall will host five lectures for its fall Lyceum series on the theme of “Landscapes, Real and Imagined”. The series will examine different aspects of the historical and physical landscape, along with some that have been invented or interpreted. Presenters will discuss how what we “see” in the landscape is altered by our individual perspective and what we think we know about these places. Lectures will be followed by discussion from the audience.

The series opens on September 25 with “Game of Thrones’ Historical Landscape: From Vikings and Mongols to Wildlings and Dothraki.” Pablo Bose, professor of Geography at the University of Vermont, will discuss the parallels in world history and the geopolitical roles of weather, climate and geography in this popular book and television series.

All lectures begin at 7:30pm on Tuesdays. Admission is $5.00, students are free.
