We will be hosting a symposium on ongoing research with James Redfield (Religious Studies), Sukanya Chakrabarti (Theater and Performance Studies), Alan Sheppard (Classics), and Jacqueline Arthur-Montagne (Classics). Each of the speakers will give a brief ten-fifteen minute presentation on their approach to oral texts and/or questions of literacy.
