Mythgard Academy is proud to announce the Guest Lecture Series. We will have the honor of hearing from six brilliant scholars and writers this year. Learn more about each guest lecturer and the topics of their discussions below. Lecture details and registration links will be added as they are scheduled.
All of our guest lectures are online using the Mythgard classroom interface. Lectures are recorded and made available for those who cannot attend live. These guest lectures are provided free of charge due to the generosity of Mythgard Academy sponsors.
The curator for this lecture series is Sørina Higgins.
