Classics in Dialogue
9:30 AM
1:00 PM
The Aydelotte Foundation presents Classics in Dialogue, a symposium in interview format. Three interviews will each pair an academic speaker with a high profile artist or intellectual whose work draws on or is in dialogue with classical antiquity.•Jennie Hirsh (Maryland Institute College of Art) interviews contemporary artists Patty Chang and Benjamin Tiven.•Allen Kuharski (Swarthmore College) interviews actor, teacher and director Emmanuelle Delpech.•Ralph Rosen (University of Pennsylvania) interviews Professor of Classical Languages and Culture at Leiden University, Netherlands, Ineke Sluiter.Our aim is to expand our notion of the relevance of Classics — and by extension the liberal arts — by engaging in direct dialogue with people whose work outside of the academy has found meaning in the classical past.
