Nancy Sorkin Rabinowitz

Professor of Comparative Literature Nancy Sorkin Rabinowitz delivered the keynote address at the University of Auckland conference on “Gender, identity and intersectionality in antiquity: Oppression and Privilege.”

Her talk, titled “Intersectional analysis in Classics: Defining rape and race in Aeschylus’ Suppliants,” developed two different ways of looking at the ancient play and the interpretation that emerges from bringing the two of them together. In the conclusion to her remarks, Rabinowitz discussed the relevance of the tragedy to contemporary discourses on gender, race and the crisis presented by refugees.
