This calendar includes events sponsored by the Scholarly Commons as well as those by
our campus partners.
Join the European Union Center and Out of Chaos Theatre for a virtual performance of "The Suppliants" by Aeschylus, a tragedy about migration and asylum. First performed in the late 460s B.C.E. at the Theater of Dionysus, “The Suppliants” tells the story of the Danaids who fled their native Egypt to escape forced marriage. The post-performance discussion features a panel of speakers on the topics of refugees in Greece and the Mediterranean, on federal approaches to U.S.immigration, and on the work of local immigration activists.
