The KU Libraries Gallery Lecture Series continues its mission to feature interdisciplinary research and creative talks with a lecture by Michelle Heffner Hayes on Thursday, Nov. 12 from 3:30-5 p.m. in Watson Library, Third Floor, Haricombe Gallery. Entitled “Flamenco on the Global Stage: Historical, critical and theoretical perspectives,” Hayes’ presentation is the second lecture in the fall speaker line-up.
