Lindsey Panxhi, Assistant Professor, English Dept., Oklahoma Baptist University
This talk will introduce the audience to several memorable medieval werewolves, who are often surprisingly sympathetic characters. Dr. Panxhi will discuss some of the origin stories for werewolves of the Middle Ages, considering the interesting dilemmas that arise when the boundaries between the human and the monstrous are blurred.

The Medieval Fair Free Lecture Series is Co-sponsored by the Center for Medieval & Renaissance Studies at the University of Oklahoma.
