Dr. Claudia Teinert presents December 5

The Otto W. and Norma L. Schafer Endowed Chair in Literature Lecture

Dr. Claudia Teinert will present "Justice, Hubris and the Failure of Leadership in the Greek Tragedies," lessons for modern leaders and followers, on Thursday, December 5, from 5-6 pm in the university's auditorium in Building A. The topic is the result of Teinert's recent sabbatical studies.

This lecture presents archaic Greek definitions of justice and hubris, and studies their influence on several Classical Greek tragedies: the Oedipus plays by Sophocles, the Oresteia by Aeschylus, and Medea by Euripides. Audience members are invited to share their reactions and questions in the last fifteen minutes of the hour.

This event is free to the community. For more information, please visit our online calendar.
