ELP Lecture Series to begin on July 16: “Archetypes in Popular Culture”

Nearly all J. F. Oberlin University students are required to study English during their first year, and many choose to continue their studies over the next three years, but some might feel that they’ve never had an opportunity to hear a real lecture in English. To remedy that situation, the English Language Program (ELP) is initiating a lecture series. The lectures will be conducted roughly once a month and will feature different ELP teachers talking about a wide range of topics in clear, easy-to-understand English.

The first lecture in the ELP Lecture Series will be delivered by Marcos Benevides on the afternoon of July 16, from 5:50 to 6:35, in Meimeikan’s room A716. Entitled “Archetypes in Popular Culture,” Mr. Benevides’ lecture will explore the concept of archetypes and how it ties together such seemingly-unrelated figures as Harry Potter, Luke Skywalker, and Barack Obama. Students, faculty, staff, and any other interested people are all welcome to attend.

Date and time: Tuesday, July 16, from 5:50 to 6:35 p.m.
Place: Room A716 (Meimeikan, on Machida Campus)

The lecture will be in English with no translation. There is no fee to attend, and reservations are not necessary.
