University Events "How they may be, and yet in two, as you will live, resolve it you." These are the closing lines of the riddle of King Antiochus in one of Shakespeare's most perplexing problem plays.

Not appearing until the Third Folio, Pericles is thought to have been written by two playwrights and has continuously confounded audiences to this day. Based on medieval legends about the adventures of the Greek Apollonius of Tyre, this late play and its riddles are sure to arouse debate. Department/Organization: Dept of English. English Department.

A Century of America's National Parks

University Events On August 25, 2016 the National Park Service celebrated its centennial. Lauded by filmmaker Ken Burns as America’s “best idea,” national parks are some of the most iconic places in the United States. For more than a hundred years, American national parks have cordoned off vast tracts of land and unique landscapes from development, and have provided a ready source of education and recreation for the masses. This seminar will explore the long and storied history of American national parks and the National Park Service. We will consider what ideals motivated the creation of the first national parks, the social consequences of national park management, how national parks fueled the growth of an American tourist industry, and how the aims of the Park Service have changed in response to new ideas about recreation and nature. This seminar will serve as your historical guide to the nation’s national parks—a guide that can enhance the experience of visiting these unique places. The seminar will be moderated by Dr.… University Event Topic: Humanities. School: Emory College. Department/Organization: Fox Center for Humanistic Inquiry.
