Dr. Conrad Gubera will present “Cottages and Castles, Peasants and Knights: Stereotypes of an Earlier England Prevail in the Cotswolds Area” at noon Monday, Oct. 3, in Corley Auditorium.
Remember the images of knights in gleaming armor; the rugged facades of medieval castles; thatched-roof cottages in bucolic, rural villages; meandering streams and country roads draped with bright green summer foliage? These images are real in the area of the Cotswolds located in upper Gloucestershire, Middlesex England.
Gubera, a professor of sociology and international studies, will combine photographs, descriptive narration and segments of commercial films for his presentation. Presented as part of the Great Britain Semester, admission is free and open to the public.
