We were excited to welcome Zoe A. Kalamara for an Online Open House entitled “The Aeschylean “Odyssey”: A Journey in Fragments.” The event took place on Friday, November 12 at 11:00 a.m. EST and was recorded. You will be able to watch the recording on the Center for Hellenic Studies YouTube Channel.
Due to technical difficulties, we were unable to stream the event live. We hope to make the recording available soon.
