A Visit from Dr. Eric Jager, author of "The Last Duel"
Dr. Eric Jager (UCLA English Dept.) will be virtually visiting UK to discuss his book, "The Last Duel," which has been made into a major motion picture staring Matt Damon, Jodie Comer, Ben Affleck, and Adam Driver, and directed by Ridley Scott. (The film premieres in the U.S. on October 15.) In a presentation and discussion with the UK community, Dr. Jager will talk about the background of his research and writing; how he composed his best-selling book; how it was picked up as a film; and his thoughts about it all, as the records of an ancient and troubling story from medieval France are given new life in new media. This talk is sponsored by the UK English Department, The UK History Department, the Gaines Center, the Program in Film Studies, and the Program in European Studies. It will be open to the general UK Community.
