Banned Books Discussion: The Handmaid's Tale

March 7, 2024
12:00pm - 1:00pm
Faculty Center for Excellence, Pfau Library 4005

Please join us for a panel discussion on Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale. Together, our panelists will explore the novel’s popular media representations while engaging the question of why it gets a reaction from book banners. They will also address why images from the book and its television series are relevant to recent social movements and events.



Prof. Rebecca Lubas, Dean of Libraries

Dr. Ece Algan, Communication Studies

Dr. Robert Kyriakos Smith, English

Dr. Jessica Luck, Chair of English Department


Facilitated by:

Dr. Rueyling Chuang, Dean of the College of Arts & Letters
