We were excited to welcome Leonard Muellner and Douglas Frame for an Online Open House. The title of the discussion is: ‘An exploration of the relevance of Odysseus’s words about kingship in Odyssey 8 to the Ionian setting of Homeric poetry’. The event was live-streamed on Thursday, January 23, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. EST, and was recorded. You can view on the Center for Hellenic Studies YouTube channel or in the frame below.
