Nancy Sorkin Rabinowitz, the Margaret Bundy Scott Professor of Comparative Literature, presented the plenary address at the conference "Girls in Antiquity," sponsored by the German Archaeological Association (DAI) in Berlin. Her topic, "Tragedy's Heroines as Girls," focused on the the ways in which the ages of the female characters who sacrifice themselves contribute to the tragedy, and the ways in which they are represented as both the subject and object of the "gaze."
