WAR  AND  MOBILITY ,  DECEIT  AND  HOMECOMING 

We have the honor of announcing these presenters:

Professor Shadi Bartsch, University of Chicago, will be presenting 
"Vergil's Other Aeneid"  
Professor Bartsch has an Aeneid translation coming out this year! 
She is also currently writing on the reception of Greco-Roman Classics in China after being a visiting scholar in Taipei.  She has authored and edited many books on antiquity and we look forward to this chance to hear from her in person.

Dr. Rebecca Kennedy, Denison University, will be offering a presentation, 

“Women's Migrations in the Ancient Greek Mediterranean.”

Her talk will reflect her recent and important work collecting data on the ancient immigration of women, ancient theories of race and ethnicity, and the later reception of these theories and views.

She co-authored Race and Ethnicity in the Classical World.


Dr. William "Greg" Thalmann, University of Southern California, will be highlighting 
the USC  "Warrior Bards" Program. 
Several veterans who participated in his program will be performing recitations from Greek literature and describing how 
they were personally impacted by studying ancient Greek views 
on war, life, and personal meaning.

We also look forward to Olga Faccani returning
with a full pedagogy presentation on the UCSB Odyssey Youth Project
and will be describing in detail the impact on these young people.
Their new 2020 program called Trojan Women will be highlighted.
