Women's Voices in Antiquity and Now with Professor Lauren Caldwell
December 8, 2020 5pm-7pm

How do gender roles determine the way women’s voices are heard, interpreted, and hindered? Lauren Caldwell, professor of classics at UMass Amherst, will join choreographer Sonia Plumb to examine how gender roles defined and limited a woman’s ability to carve out her personal and professional lives in ancient Greek and Roman cultures. Choreographer Sonia Plumb will share how Caldwell's research led to her contemporary version in the dance Penelope’s Odyssey. (Due to COVID, Penelope's Odyssey will premier in digital form February 2021.)

Co-sponsored with
Wadsworth Atheneum.
