Performance Piece: Lynn Kozak (McGill), “Previously…on the Iliad”

March 14 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Room LI 205

Prof. Lynn Kozak will be performing an excerpt from the Iliad as part of her ongoing performance project “Previously…on the Iliad”.


Prof. Lynn Kozak has made the translation and performance of Ancient Greek plays a standard element in her teaching of undergraduate and graduate students at McGill since 2011, putting on stage—together with student translators and actors—comedies, tragedies, and dialogues by Aeschylus, Euripides, Sophocles, Aristophanes, Seneca, Plato, and Plautus.

Prof. Kozak uses her sabbatical leave for an exciting and public performance-based research-creation project. The FRQSC-funded “Previously On…the Iliad” explores research questions about episode construction and narrative strategies in the Iliad.

The Globe and Mail reported on her project on February 20, 2018, read the article here.

The CBC Radio’s As It Happens reported on her project on February 27, 2018, listen or read the article here.
