Professor of Comparative Literature Nancy Sorkin Rabinowitz was a respondent during two panel discussions at the fall meeting of the Classical Association of the Atlantic States (CAAS) held Oct. 8-10 in Wilmington, Del.

Rabinowitz presented “Orestes and Pylades Among the Taurians: The Traffic in Women Again?” during a panel on “Ancient Greco-Roman Myths of Love in the Modern Romantic Imagination and Contemporary Feminist Classical Scholarship. The discussion was focused on Myths of Love: Echoes of Ancient Mythology in the Modern Romantic Imagination, by Ruth Westheimer and Jerome Singerman. Rabinowitz addressed the (potentially) homoerotic relationship of Orestes and Pylades in two plays by Euripides.

In another panel, “The Greeks at Red Bull Theater,” Jesse Berger, Ted Pappas, Olympia Dukakis, Leila Robins and Teagel Bouchere, presented three scenes from Euripides’ Hippolytos. A panel of classicists each responded from their own perspective – Rabinowitz spoke about teaching tragedy in prison and at Hamilton, with particular attention to the importance of performance to reading.
