Bards and Bad Manners: the Odyssey as Social Primer 6:00-7:30 p.m.-- The Carnegie Hosts The Other Night School by The University of West Georgia School of the Arts. We commonly think of The Odyssey as a tale of heroism and bravery, a journey through the mystical world of Greek antiquity. Yet the epic also effectively functions as a code of conduct, a book of social mores, a guide to Greek etiquette. Join us as Dr. Chad Davidson, SOTA director & Professor of English, considers some of the ways in which Homer might just be the first Emily Post or Judith Martin, the original Mr. Manners. Reception begins at 6:00 p.m. with talks at 6:30 p.m. For more information about The Other Night School please visit https://www.westga.edu/academics/coah/sota/featured-events.php.
