Nancy Rabinowitz, the Margaret  Bundy Scott Profesor of Comparative Literature, presented her research at the Open University conference titled "Classics in the Modern World-A Democratic Turn?" in Milton Keynes, UK. The conference brought together scholars from all over the world to discuss whether the use of antiquity in modern times is in fact democratic. Her talk, "Expanding Tragedy as Critique," focused on contemporary uses of tragedy to critique the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Rabinowitz also traveled to Oxford and Royal Holloway where she was the invited respondent to a postgraduate symposium on reception titled "Revelry, Rhythm and Blues." Her remarks summarized the papers and raised questions for future research.
