Heike Paul has been invited to give a guest lecture at a special event of the Center for American Studies at the University of Southern Denmark at Odense, which is titled "Symbols and Myths in Polarized Times." The event, organized by Anita Wohlmann and Jørn Brøndal (both from the University of Southern Denmark), is planned as a kick-off event to a regular series of hybrid or fully online meetings on myths and symbols. Heike Paul will talk about "Appropriations of the 'Lost Colony': Narratives of Failure and Self-Exoneration." The second lecture during this event, "Between Barbie and Atomic Oppenheimer: Truth, Lies, and Denialism in Contemporary America," is given by Miles Orvell from Temple University (USA).

The hybrid event, which is supported by the U.S. Embassy in Copenhagen, takes place on October 26, 2023 from 2:15-4 pm at Campus Odense and online.
