Rhode Island Hall, Room 108
The Mellon-Sawyer seminar "Animal Magnetism" presents a modern translation of Aristophanes' ancient Greek comedy Birds. In a performed reading on Tuesday, May 6, two scenes will be acted out to illustrate and explore the crossing of boundaries between species. The performance will be accompanied by a short lecture on what it meant to the ancient Greeks to perform the animal on the comic stage.
The event starts at 7 pm, and takes place in RI Hall 108. A short reception will follow.
