Krishni Burns publishes review of Theater of War’s Oedipus Project

Krishni Burns, Lecturer of Latin in the Department of Classics and Mediterranean Studies, recently published a review of Theater of War’s Oedipus Project. Her review of the May 7, 2020 Zoom production was published in Didaskalia, a peer-reviewed electronic journal dedicated to the study of all aspects of ancient Greek and Roman performance. In the review, Burns argues that "[t]he project demonstrated that Greek tragedy can be used today to process trauma at a societal level, and offered substantive evidence that tragedy had the same power in Classical Athens."
