About the Speakers:
Professor Jeff D. Peterson is a sociology professor and director

Linfield’s new major, Wine Studies, and also regularly teaches a popular course
on the Zombie Apocalypse.
Jamie Friedman is an assistant professor of English literature and
gender studies at Linfield College. She specializes in medieval English literature,
in which monsters of all varieties make regular and provocative appearances.
She also teaches courses on medieval and modern race, gender and sexuality.
These monthly, free events are open to everyone interested in Oregon and Pacific Northwest history. Co-sponsored by like-minded historical and civic organizations, we bring you experts, scholars, first-person experiencers and historians who expound on topics from Lewis and Clark to shipwrecks, hop growing to women pioneers and far, far beyond. It's like being back in the classroom - except this time you get to settle into comfortable seats and enjoy a drink or two with dinner while you listen and learn.
This event is eligible for a History Pub Stamp
