Professor Owen Ewald, known to many English and Cultural Studies majors, will once again be delivering the annual C. May Marston Lecture. His topic this year is “World Domination and Universal History.”
In his lecture, Dr. Ewald will examine several ancient examples of attempts at writing a universal history–a single text that tries to cover all times and places. Professor Ewald’s claim will be that these attempts are often responses to their cultures’ efforts at world domination.
The lecture is free and open to the public.
