Both the field of Classics and the Humanities in general are often said to be in a state of crisis, or even to be on the verge of collapse or apocalypse. In this lecture, Dr. Nooter briefly contextualize these claims within the history of Anglophone education, suggesting that they have always been in a state of flux. She will then outline some creative endeavors and potential futures for the field of Classics.
Dr. Sarah Nooter is a Professor of Classics and Theater and Performance Studies at the University of Chicago. She is the author of two books on song, voice and tragedy: When Heroes Sing: Sophocles and the Shifting Soundscape of Tragedy (Cambridge, 2012) and The Mortal Voice in the Tragedies of Aeschylus (Cambridge, 2017). She also coedited Sound and the Ancient Senses, with Shane Butler, and is the Editor-in-Chief of the journal Classical Philology. She is now completing a book called The Age of Ephemerality: Bodies, Time and Ancient Greek Poetry. It explores modes of embodiment and temporality in ancient Greek poetry and song.
