The notion of autopsy (from the Ancient Greek autos and opsis: to see for oneself) designates the prime operation in the development of knowledge. Even though the common meaning of autopsy, that of cadaveric examinations, only becomes lexicalized in the 19th century, the word is diversely used in history, religion, medicine and philosophy.

Prof. Kozak serially performs the complete Iliad every Monday for 30 weeks in Montreal

News - Fri, 02/23/2018 - 19:33

Professor Lynn Kozak uses her sabbatical leave for a daring theatre experiment—performing the Greek epic poem The Iliad (attributed to Homer) in serial fashion every Monday evening over the period of 30 weeks. She has made the translation and performance of Ancient Greek plays a standard element in her teaching of undergraduate and graduate students at McGill since 2011, putting on stage—together with student translators and actors—comedies, tragedies, and dialogues by Aeschylus, Euripides, Sophocles, Aristophanes, Seneca, Plato, and Plautus.

Professor Downey publishes book on Lacrosse, Identity, and Indigenous Nationhood

News - Sat, 02/17/2018 - 22:23

Professor Allan Downey’s first book, The Creator’s Game: Lacrosse, Identity, and Indigenous Nationhood, has been published by University of British Columbia Press in February 2018. The game of lacrosse has been a central element of many Indigenous cultures for centuries, but once non-Indigenous players entered the sport, it became a site of appropriation – then reclamation – of Indigenous identities. Focusing on the history of lacrosse in Indigenous communities from the 1860s to the 1990s, The Creator’s Game explores Indigenous-non-Indigenous relations and Indigenous identity formation.

James Forbes (1749-1819), Discovery and perplexity

Events Archive - Sun, 01/28/2018 - 00:20
Date: Tue, 02/27/2018 - 17:30 to 19:00 Location: Colgate Seminar Room, Rare Books and Special Collections (4th floor), 3459 rue McTavish, Montreal, H3A 0C9

Taken individually, Forbes' works are deceptive. There is the not too inspiring account of a "grand tour" in manuscript form, a collection of letters giving a somewhat dismayed description of France on the eve of the first empire and a book on India marvelously illustrated by a young romantic artist. Read together, however, they throw a singularly interesting light on two of the main events of the time: the effect of the French revolution on various countries of Europe and the rocky development of the British colonial empire.
