  • October 15, 2014 The Importance of Being Earnest William Peace Theatre presents Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest, directed by Amy White. Working within the social conventions of late Victorian London, The Importance of Being Earnest is a farcical comedy in which the protagonists maintain fictitious personae to escape burdensome social obligations. The play's major themes are the triviality with which it treats institutions as serious as marriage, and the resulting satire of Victorian ways. Its high farce, humor and witty dialog have helped make The Importance of Being Earnest Wilde's most enduringly popular play. TICKETS: $5 students / $10 Alumni, Senior Citizens, Faculty & Staff / $15 Adults SEATING: General Admission Purchase individual tickets online here. Purchase season tickets online here. view Event

with Dr. Peter Mandaville on March 6
Local Four-Year Baccalaureate Hosts Presentation & Discussion by
Expert on Middle East & Islamic-U.S. Relations

RALEIGH, N.C., Feb. 25, 2014 – William Peace University, a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, has announced that it is continuing its University Speaker Series with a presentation and discussion by Dr. Peter Mandaville, a nonresident senior fellow with the Project on U.S. Relations with the Islamic World at Brookings, director of the Ali Vural Ak Center for Global Islamic Studies, and associate professor of government at George Mason University. The event will be held on Thursday, March 6, 2014 from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. in Main Parlor located at 15 East Peace St.

Born and raised in the Middle East, Mandaville’s work is focused on the comparative study of religious authority and social movements in the Muslim world, with an emphasis on youth groups, transnational networks, and new media. He has conducted research in Muslim settings such as Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia, and West Africa, and is most recently the author of Global Political Islam, a broad global overview of Islamic social and political movements. Additionally, Mandaville has testified before the U.S. Congress on Islamic radicalism and authored numerous book chapters and journal articles, and has contributed to publications such as Foreignpolicy.com, the International Herald Tribune and The Guardian.

“We are excited to host another great speaker with Dr. Mandaville here at William Peace University,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “He will be able to offer our students a unique perspective and outlook on culture in the Middle East, teaching them things they will be sure to remember and reflect on.”

The event is free and open to the public; however, registration is required. For more information on the event, as well as registration, click here.
