"The Invention of Romance: The Medieval Plot That Created Modern Love" presented by Professor Joyce Coleman, English Dept., OU. Romance is an idea and an ideal embraced by millions of people today. But how many of these people realize that the idea of romance was invented in the Middle Ages, by a mother-and-daughter team intent on giving women a more prominent role in literature and culture?

The Medieval Fair Free Lecture Series is cosponsored by the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies University of Oklahoma.
Come learn more about the middle ages just for the fun of learning! No papers, no test, just interesting information about life long ago.
This event is made possible, in part, by a grant from the Norman Arts Council Hotel Tax Grant Program and the National Endowment for the Arts.
