Apr. 12 - In two recent novels, Kamila Shamsie and Colm Tóibín recreate classical mythology to address contemporary audiences and transnational subjects. Kamila Shamsie's Home Fire brings the story of Antigone to the contemporary British Pakistani community, while Colm Tóibín's House of Names re-imagines the Agamemnon tragedy from the points of view of Clytemnestra and Electra. These two authors will join each other in conversation to discuss their modern adaptations of these Greek classics and to explore why these heroines continue to haunt writers and readers today.

Nov 1-2 -- They are the undead texts. Once they bestrode disciplines like colossi: assigned on every reading list, cited in almost every book and article, endlessly discussed and debated. They were often the only college texts students could recall decades after graduation; they recruited a whole generation of scholars to their respective fields. Most were composed between 1920 and 1970. This conference is devoted to these texts in diverse disciplines across the human sciences.
