Annual Lecture 2016
29 February 2016
The John Rylands Research Institute hosted its third Annual Lecture on Thursday, 11 February at The John Rylands Library.
Following a drinks reception, guests were seated in the Historic Reading Room for Professor Dame Marina Warner’s lecture entitled Oracular Narrative: Timing and Truth Telling. Professor Warner took inspiration from items in the University’s Arabic collection as she shared her expertise on mythic prefigurement and prophecy in contemporary fiction. The evening was a great success with over 120 guests in attendance.
