Five Must-Attend Lectures in Phoenix This January
Eric Liu knows a thing or two about America, politics, and race. The former speechwriter for the Clinton administration and author of The Accidental Asian has made a career based on all of the above. He'll further explore those topics during his talk, "Citizen Who," which details five Americans' stories of what it means to be a citizen and how they came to that realization.
Catch Liu from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, January 23, on Stage Two Theater at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts.
"The Many Manifestations of the Satanic Hunter in Medieval English Literature" @ ASU's Language and Literature Building
Why, yes. This one does win for most impressive title. But we're sure that David Scott-Macnab's discussion of Chaucer and other Medieval authors' usage of the devil disguised as a hunter in their works will prove just as interesting as it sounds. The lecture is free and open to the public, taking place in LL 316 on ASU's Tempe campus.
