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.

Sept 27 -- According to Prof. Jodi Byrd, "Caught within the both/and of late colonial collapse and the fantasies of revolutionary upheaval, American futurities often reproduce themselves through nineteenth-century signs of Indianness within the ongoing context of colonial domination. This talk close reads HBO's Westworld alongside work by Indigenous women writers including LeAnne Howe and Rebecca Roanhorse to consider how antiblackness and indigeneity function within the logics of settler colonialism and how Indigenous futurisms and their pessimisms anticipate ruin as radical resistance."
