“From Nashville to Dollywood”
FREE lecture by Helen Morales, University of California, Santa Barbara
Nashville Parthenon

Please RSVP to: 615.862.8431 or

In 2010, Helen Morales made a pilgrimage to Dollywood. Morales was a recent transplant from England to the United States, a Classics Professor, and a huge Dolly Parton fan. She traveled from Graceland to Pigeon Forge, via Nashville, asking questions about what it means to make such a journey, what an outsider’s eye sees (and misses), and how visiting the Nashville Parthenon and Dolly Parton’s Stampede made her reevaluate ancient Greek and Roman institutions. She published these stories in Pilgrimage to Dollywood (University of Chicago Press (2014). Now, nearly ten years after her original journey, Morales is traveling again to Nashville and Dollywood. In this lecture, Morales will intersperse readings from her book with reflections on how things have changed since her original pilgrimage.
