READS: Soyinka's Bacchae (CAAS Annual Meeting, Oct. 12, 2019)


At 2:30pm on October 12, 2019, we will be holding our second READS event at the annual meeting of the Classical Association of the Atlantic States (CAAS). The focus, this year, will lie on Wole Soyinka (winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1986) and his play The Bacchae of Euripides: A Communion Rite (1973).

To facilitate engagement with the play, the format will mimic an advanced seminar in which CAAS members are invited to participate. We encourage participants to register in advance at the link provided below so that they can receive the text and discussion questions and have time to prepare them for the workshop.
