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

Published: 23 February 2018

Professor Lynn Kozak uses her sabbatical leave for an exciting and public performance-based research-creation project. The FRQSC-funded Previously On...the Iliad explores research questions about episode construction and narrative strategies in the Iliad. Each weekly performance of a part of Iliad pursues a distinct direction of academic inquiry. The public is invited to Bar des Pins on Avenue du Parc to witness as this research-creation project live each Monday evening. 

Professor Kozak 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.
