British Royals to Be Lunch & Learn Topic
The British royal family and America’s fascination with it will be the topic of the June 9 Lunch & Learn program to be hosted by the Dalton State Alumni Relations office.
The lunchtime program will begin at 12 noon in Room 105 of The James E. Brown Center at the north end of the Dalton State College campus.
Dr. John Hutcheson, Professor Emeritus of History and Vice President Emeritus for Academic Affairs at Dalton State, will present “Whither the Windsors? Britain’s Monarchy in the Era of William and Kate and ‘The King’s Speech.’”
The presentation will focus on the origins of the British royal family, The Windsors, and explore its recent history and future after Elizabeth II. “Along the way, we’ll consider what place hereditary monarchy has in the 21st century in democracies such as Britain and also why so many Americans are captivated by Britain’s Royal Family,” said Dr. Hutcheson.
Reservations are required and may be made by calling 706-272-2473. Cost is $8 for Dalton State alumni; $10 for the general public; payment is required in advance.
