Popular Literature Lunchtime Series

Do you love Lord of the Rings? Potty about Harry Potter? The Popular Literature Lunchtime Lecture Series, hosted by the School of English at Trinity College Dublin, is a series of free public lectures from Irish and international experts on all sorts of popular literature - romance, crime, horror, children's literature, and more.

Running on Wednesdays from 12:30 - 13:30pm in Trinity's Hilary Term (Jan-April) this monthly series takes the form of 30-40 minute lectures followed by a 10 minute open Q&A in which the audience will be invited to offer comments or questions on the topic.

The series is aimed at postgraduate students, staff, and the general public. Perfect for a lunchtime pop lit fix!
