• The University of Tennessee at Knoxville libraries will host a free viewing and discussion series several Wednesday evenings this spring as part of its Documentaries in the Library series.

The next film, scheduled for Wednesday, March 2, will be "Proteus: A Nineteenth Century Vision," a visually rich meditation whose central figure epitomized the troubled intersection between scientific and artistic vision. The discussion will be held by Dr. Neil Greenburg, professor of ecology and evolutionary biology.
