Six @ Six series to explore 'Shakespeare's Guide to Love and Marriage'

CENTER VALLEY, Pa. – Penn State Lehigh Valley Continuing Education has announced a new topic for its fall Six @ Six lecture series. Margaret Christian, associate professor of English at Penn State Lehigh Valley, will lead six "Shakespeare's Guide to Love and Marriage" lectures at 6 p.m. Thursdays, Oct. 23 to Dec. 4 (no lecture Nov. 27) at the Lehigh Valley campus. The cost of the series is $59 per person or $89 for two people from the same household. The series is open to the public.

Christian will help participants explore cultural differences, appreciate design elements and enjoy Shakespeare’s language – soaring love lyrics, rude humor and everything in between. The series will take place in lecture format, will offer participants the opportunity to learn in an understandable and engaging way, and will incorporate interactive discussion.

Christian teaches courses in writing and literature at the Lehigh Valley campus. Her work on early modern English poetry and religious rhetoric involves thinking about 16th-century society and its impact on daily life at that time.
