Zombies in Pop Culture
The recent zombie invasion of pop culture has led many to wonder about the rise of the walking dead. Local professor and author Chris Paris talks about the origins of zombies, looking to anthropology, religion, and folklore for answers. Paris graduated from Vanderbilt University with a Ph.D. in Religion. He teaches courses in Bible, Comparative Religion, and Cultural Studies, and wrote the book Narrative Obtrusion in the Hebrew Bible. His research focuses on narrative criticism and pop culture.

Metro government is modernizing the parking garage adjacent to the Main Library. The project began late June 2016. Approximately 360 spaces will be added, and other improvements will be made to the garage. Seventy-five parking spaces are temporarily closed for the duration of construction. Project completion is expected in spring of 2018.
Due to the temporary parking space decrease and temporary lane closures, please allow extra time when planning to visit during peak hours or for special events.
