Congratulations!

Patricia Ward, Emerita Professor, is the author of an essay, “Fénelon and Classical America,” pp. 171-191, in Fénelon in the Enlightenment:  Traditions, Adaptation, and Variations, vol. 178 of the series Internationale Forschungen zur Allegemienen und Vergleichenden Literaturwissenschaft (2014).  The essay originated as a keynote lecture given at the U. of Potsdam (Germany) and includes illustrations of Telemachus wallpaper recently restored at Nashville’s Belmont Mansion and a signature of Andrew Jackson on the title page of an essay in his copy (in French) of Télémaque, purchased when he was in the White House.  The book is now in the Library Company of Philadelphia’s collection, but the receipt for the purchase of the book is in the holdings of the Hermitage, here in Nashville, which Jackson and his wife also decorated with Telemachus wallpaper.

Robert Barsky gave a series of talks on social justice in spring 2014 that are available on YouTube:
