  • "Bathing with a Goddess (for your country's sake)"
    • Keyne Cheshire '94, Associate Professor of Classics at Davidson College Callimachus' Hymn 1 to Zeus tells the story of how Teiresias (as a young man) sees Athena (and his own mother!) naked, and is blinded for his transgression. The poem gives this Theban story a (fictional) ritual setting: the bathing of Athena's statue in the river in Argos. The talk will treat the ritual function of this Teiresias story for this fictive Argive ritual, but will also suggest the ultimately Alexandrian relevance of the hymn as a whole.

  • Playing False: Betrayal in the Ancient World
    • Carleton Classics Senior Symposium 2012. Intrigue, treachery, espionage: betrayal was everywhere in the ancient world, but there was nothing simple about individuals' loyalties or the choices they made. Betrayal took many forms, but at its core was a choice to privilege one interest that led to real or perceived damage to others. The Carleton Department of Classics’ senior classics majors explore instances of betrayal in Ancient Greece and Rome such as early Christian martyrs, the mistrial of generals, virgin sacrifice and the legacy of Constantine. Each talk will last fifteen to twenty minutes in addition to question and answer sessions and a panel discussion on the larger topic of betrayal.
