  • Op 30 augustus 1989 wordt langs een landweggetje in Dommelen een dode vrouw
    gevonden. Ze is vermoord, gedumpt in een greppel. Het blijkt te gaan om de 32-jarige Wies
    Hensen uit Budel, een dorp ruim 16 kilometer verderop. Daar kent bijna iedereen haar.

    Het politieonderzoek richt zich op haar woonplaats, waar Wies op de avond voor haar
    dood is gezien op de kermis. Ze was in het gezelschap van enkele mannen. De politie
    ondervraagt honderden mensen in het dorp, maar al na een paar weken zit het onderzoek
    muurvast. Maar wat als de politie altijd in de verkeerde richting heeft gezocht? En de daders niet uit Budel komen maar uit Valkenswaard, uit de omgeving van waar haar lichaam werd gedumpt?

    ED-verslaggever Bart-Jan van Rooij, die vlakbij de vindplaats van Wies woont, probeert precies dertig jaar na dato samen met collega Chiel Timmermans, nabestaanden, politie en andere betrokkenen op zoek te gaan naar het ware verhaal.

  • In this subject we explore Greek and Roman mythology, with particular reference to some core narratives and themes. Greek mythology is very focused around hero myths, and this is a central aspect of our study. Heroes studied in the subject include Heracles, Jason, Perseus, Bellerophon and Odysseus. We also examine some key thematic elements of Classical mythology- the figure of the monster, the sexual conduct of gods and mortals, conception and birth, fire, images of the underworld and life after death. The adaption of Greek myth in Italy (Entruscan and Roman) to meet the needs of different cultures will be explored. Sources dealt with in the subject include epic poetry, drama, painted vases, tomb paintings, and architectural remains. We conclude the subject with some modern cinematic adaptations of mythic themes from the ancient world.
