Professor Carolyne Larrington from the University of Oxford will discuss the history and literature from which George R. R. Martin created the imaginary medieval fantasy world of Game of Thrones. Professor Larrington presents her take on why the series has become the most popular show in television history and speculates on how the series may come to an end.

As the University of Oxford's Professor of Medieval European Literature, Carolyne Larrington writes and publishes on the medieval in the modern world, researches medieval European literature, and is a teacher of medieval English literature as a Fellow of St Johnís College.
