About the event

Antígona is a re-writing of Sophocles’ synonymous play by the celebrated Peruvian poet José Watanabe. The reading of excerpts of the play in English and Spanish will be followed by a discussion with Professor Margaret Carson (BMCC, Modern Languages), Professor David Schur (Brooklyn College, Classics), and the translator into English, Cristina Pérez Díaz (Graduate Center, Classics).

This event is presented as part of Translation, an interdisciplinary research group that investigates how translation might be understood as a process of transformation that deepens engagement with places, people, cultures, and languages. The group is supported by the Mellon Seminar on Public Engagement and Collaborative Research. For more information or to join, email[email protected].

Cosponsored by the Translation Mellon Seminar on Public Engagement and Collaborative Research, the Social and Political Theory Student Association, and the Classical and Ancient Near Eastern Studies Group.
