ICC “Between the Lines” Program Explores the Influences for “Star Wars”

Join Illinois Central College’s “Between the Lines” program as ICC Studio Coordinator Fallon Allison and English, Humanities, and Language Studies Professor Stephanie Guedet trace the intergalactic map of myths, artifacts and films that inspired the Star Wars universe. The journey begins November 1 at 7 p.m. in the Arbor Hall Auditorium on the ICC North Campus, located at 5407 N. University St., Peoria.

It’s a bright time for fans of space fantasy. Star Wars has returned to the silver screen. Decades after first uniting themes, archetypes, and iconography from art across the galaxy, Star Wars returns as young heroines are awakened and new friendships are forged. “Star Wars: Episode BTL” takes a closer look at “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…”

“Between the Lines” is a lecture series presented by the faculty members of the English, Humanities and Language Studies Department at ICC.  The goal of the series is to offer literary presentations which will interest students and people in the community as well as promote reading literacy and scholarly study.

The programs are free and open to the public.
