On Friday Nov 13, 7-9 pm, the Latin Club is sponsoring the 24th annual “Celebration of the Classics.”  It will be virtual this year.  Here is info about the event:

  • Each year, the event rotates through 4 poems from classical literature: Homer’s Iliad, Homer’s Odyssey, Ovid’s Metamorphoses, and Vergil’s Aeneid.
  • This year, we are celebrating the Iliad. Composed by the Greek poet Homer in the 8th century BC, the Iliad is one of the seminal works in Western literature. The epic poem tells the story of the legendary Trojan War. More specifically, the poem focuses on the rage of the Greek warrior Achilles and its consequences for both the Greeks and the Trojans. 
  • During the virtual event, there will be a presentation by a UC archaeologist about whether the Trojan War really happened (UC has done excavations at ancient Troy for decades and has many artifacts in its collection).  Click here to sign up for this virtual presentation, Fri Nov 13, 7-8 pm:  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0b4eaeae292-latin1
  • A virtual Jeopardy!-like competition will follow, with all questions about the Iliad.  Click here to sign up for this virtual competition, Fri Nov 13, 8-9 pm:  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/10c0b4eaeae292-summit2
