This summer, I was able to attend the course in Modern Greek at the Princeton Athens Center, taught by Lelia Panteloglou, as well as a three-week French course through LSF in Montpellier, France. Department funding also supported my travels to other sites in Greece as well as visits to museums and sites within Athens relevant to my research and coursework.
Theater director and MacArthur “genius” grant winner Luis Alfaro will deliver Princeton’s 2022-2023 Robert Fagles Lecture for Classics in the Contemporary Arts. Alfaro works in theater, performance, poetry and journalism, and is known for plays and performances including three adaptations of ancient Greek dramas: Mojada, a retelling of Medea set in Los Angeles, Oedipus El Rey, a Chicano retelling of Oedipus Rex, and Electricidad, based on Sophocles’ Electra.
