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.
