Rabinowitz Presents at International Conference

Margaret Bundy Scott Professor of Comparative Literature Nancy Sorkin Rabinowitz presented a paper titled “Ancient Myth and Feminism: Prison Activism and the Medea Project” at an international conference on “Classical Greek and Roman Literature: Gendered Perspectives in Reading and Reception” at the University of Maryland, College Park.


Rabinowitz’s work is part of an ongoing project on the use of ancient tragedy for progressive political purposes in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. In her essay, she examined the work of Rhodessa Jones’ Medea Project: Theater for Incarcerated Women/HIV Circle which uses the myths of Demeter (Food Taboos) and Pandora (Slouching toward Armageddon). Rabinowitz’s paper grew out of her recent residency with the Medea Project, made possible by the Christian A. Johnson fund.
