NICE Workshop #3 The Odyssey, The Brothers Karamazov, The Three Musketeers, and Follow The River
This year we are grateful to have the support of an Indiana Humanities Initiative grant. In this workshop, we will focus on cultural context in our four selected books and their passages. Guest panelists: Lewis (Terry) Dibble, PhD, English Lecturer, IUPUC. Professor Dibble will be delivering a lecture on the female rhetoric in The Odyssey, particularly the selected passage between Penelope and Odysseus. An alert hearer realizes that Penelope is at least as clever as her man. Paul “Spike” Morin-Wilson, PhD in Theatre and Performance Studies, Specialist in Ancient Languages. Dr. Morin-Wilson will speak to the cultural context of The Odyssey.
After the gusts panelists’ presentations, we will facilitate comparative discussion with our passages from The Three Musketeers, The Brothers Karamazov, and Follow The River. You are welcome to bring the tools of your creativity to work with as we discuss the books and find inspiration for your creative submissions. Space is limited.
Logan Street Sanctuary, Inc. (LSS) is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) not-for-profit cultural arts organization. Without your support, we couldn't host such great events! Thank you!
