Friday, Sept. 28


Crime and Criminality in 19th-century Wales
New West Campus, Laura C. Muir Performing Arts Theatre
3:30-5pm
A lecture by Conway Davies, University of Wales Trinity Saint David. The words "I will fear no evil" from Psalm 23 were probably the words uttered most often by the Welsh in the 19th century. Many drew comfort from the mantra, but others in their lantern-lit darkness lived in fear. Evil forces lurked in every corner. This lecture will explore these dark corners and hopefully shed some light on the everyday lives of the common people of Wales. Reception to follow in the Theatre Foyer.
