Phaethon and the Monsters
Fri, November 7, 2008 • 4:30 PM • Classics Lounge (WAG 116)
Light refreshments to precede the lecture. Everyone welcome!Alessandro Barchiesi, Professor at Siena and Stanford and our two-week visiting scholar, will be presenting a paper on Ovid entitled "Phaethon and the Monsters." In a departure from our normal procedure, Prof. Barchiesi has kindly agreed to circulate his paper, a chapter from the forthcoming collection Paradox and the Marvellous in Augustan Literature (Cambridge 2009), beforehand to all interested parties. On Friday, rather than read the entire paper, he will go over the main points and offer some comments for about 30 minutes, after which we can move on to a working discussion. Please contact Prof. Larry Kim lykim at mail.utexas.edu or Prof. Karl Galinsky at galinsky at mail.utexas.edu for a copy of the talk, which we can e-mail to you as a PDF, or, alternatively, there will be copies available in WAG 123 as of Monday morning.
