Lecture: "The Greek Tragic Family on the Irish Stage"


Location: 424 Flanner Hall

The Keough-Naughton Institute for Irish Studies presents Isabelle Torrance, associate professor in the Department of Classics, who will speak to “The Greek Tragic Family on the Irish Stage.”

Torrance specializes in archaic and classical Greek literature and culture, especially Greek tragedy and religion. She is also interested in the reception of classical myth in later literature. In her teaching she aims to combine broad understanding of different literary genres and what they tell us about Greek culture, with close textual examination and critical analysis, prompting connections to be made between specific topics and universal issues of the human condition. Torrance is writing a book on Greek tragedy and the Irish imagination.
