Ron Fritze

Ron Fritze to discuss his book, Invented Knowledge: False History, Fake Science, and Pseudo-Religions, at Athens State on Jan. 26

Let's begin with a simple question: What is the book about?  One word answer: pseudohistory. The prefix is rooted in the Greek pseudesthai, "to lie."  So, Invented Knowledge is a selective study of false and spurious accounts of history. Many of these accounts are the focus of various popular subcultures, each tied to an alternative perspective on a particular aspect of the vast wilderness of the past.  Some pseudohistorical texts are downright fantastic and very much fun to contemplate.  Others are troubling interpretations of the human condition. 

College of Arts and Sciences Dean Ron Fritze will discuss his book on Tuesday, January 26 at 7:00 p.m. in the Chapel of Founders Hall.   The lecture is sponsored by the Livingston Concert Lecture Series.  Fritze will hit upon such topics as Atlantis, ancient alien visitations, and the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel.

Fritze was named Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at Athens State in 2005.  Recently, the Alabama Humanities Foundation picked him to be a speaker in its Roads Scholars programs.  He also sees more of the world by going on cruises as a destination speaker.

The January 26 event is free and open to the public with no reservations required.   For more information call 256-233-8296.
