Dr. Anne Cotterill, associate professor emerita in English and technical communication, will discuss the effect the Little Ice Age (1300-1800) had on literature at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 30, in Room 211 McNutt Hall.
As part of Sigma Tau Delta’s brown bag series, Cotterill’s talk will explore the emergence of cold as a powerful figure in literature through the lens of a world that was cooling down rather than heating up, an era when reports of ghostly white bears and brutally low temperatures stoked fears that the north was haunted by Satan.
