Lynk addresses Project Humanities event
will host a conversation on the nature of mythical and modern heroes on Monday, April 15, in the Lattie F. Coor Hall on ASU’s Tempa campus. He will be joined by Carolivia Herron, a Project Humanities Visiting Scholar.
The event, “’Don’t Push Me!’ The Heroic Ideal from The Iliad to Harry Potter and Grandmaster Flash,” will explore changing concepts of the heroic ideal over time and across different genres. It begins at 6 p.m. in Room 120, and is free and open to the public.
Lynk and Herron will examine the common elements and clear distinctions between various illustrations of heroism by looking at classical epic poetry in Homer's The Iliad, modern prose fiction in J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter, and the contemporary rap music of Grandmaster Flash.
