Thomas W. Gal­lant, pro­fes­sor of Mod­ern Greek History and Ar­chae­ol­ogy at the Univer­sity of San Diego, Cal­i­for­nia, will de­liver a lec­ture ti­tled “Mur­der on Black Moun­tain: Love and Death on a 19th Cen­tury Greek Is­land” at the In­ter­na­tional Cen­ter for Hel­lenic and Mediter­ranean Stud­ies (DIKEMES) on Mon­day, March 13. The lec­ture will ex­plore ar­chives re­lat­ing to the bru­tal mur­der of English Cap­tain John Parker and his dog, Duffy, on the Greek is­land of Cephalo­nia in May 1849, a cause cele­bre in mid-19th cen­tury Europe. Parker’s mur­der was never solved, de­spite vig­or­ous po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tions, though sus­pects were iden­ti­fied. The lec­ture starts at 7 p.m. and ad­mis­sion is free of charge.
