Conversations with Oedipus


  October 20-22, Loyola University Maryland, with Maryland Humanities Council grant support, will host a three-day symposium exploring the contemporary value of Greek theatre.

Public lectures by Classics scholars, workshops, and a free production of Sophocles Oedipus the King teach about the enduring value of Greek drama and demonstrate their ability to explore contemporary social and political issues.  David Jacobson, Assistant Professor of Classics at Loyola University Maryland, tells us more.
