O Λάβκραφτ υπό το Βλέμμα της Αρχαιολογίας  

The Lairs of Cthulhu Archaeology, Myth and Mystery in the work of HP Lovecraft
James Holloway
08 February 2010 (Monday)
7.15 for 7.30 start

For many, the name HP Lovecraft conjures images of strange pre-human ruins. In fact, Lovecraft was keenly interested in archaeology and ancient history, and used archaeological theory to create specific dramatic effects in his work. This talk explores Lovecraft's relationship to archaeology, its use in his fiction, the adoption of this imagery by the Lovecraftian fan community, and the ways in which Lovecraft's work anticipates modern debates in the field. This is a night for all who have been moved by the landscapes he conjured, the deeps he evoked: the lairs of Cthulhu.

This is a repeat of the sold-out lecture given October 2009, due to popular demand!!

James Holloway has a PhD in archaeology from Cambridge, focusing on funerary archaeology in the Anglo-Saxon period. He has a lifelong interest in Lovecraft, and originally began to look into this subject as part of a 2007 conference session on «the archaeology of imaginary civilizations».

1) Μάλλον πρέπει να διαβάσεις πιο προσεκτικά το δεύτερο κεφάλαιο του βιβλίου μου!
2) Περισσότερα θα βρεις γι’ αυτό το θέμα στον δεύτερο τόμο της έρευνας μου που είναι να κυκλοφορήσει στα τέλη του 2010!
