Presented by Community Education Arts, Inc. at Unknown

NICE Workshop #5
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 compare and contrast various elements in the selected passages from all four of our 2018 books, The Odyssey, The Brothers Karamazov, The Three Musketeers, and Follow The River. We’ll explore visual and emotive elements from the books and their selected passages in terms of our own experiences.
Guest panelists: Professor Wendy A. Vogt, Assistant Professor, Department of Anthropology at IUPUI. Professor Vogt will present on the ways feminists think about performativity, intersectionality, and identity. Professor David Hoegberg, Associate Professor of English, The IU School of Liberal Arts, IUPUI. Professor Hoegberg will present on the imagery, symbolism, and thematic interpretation of The Odyssey.
You are welcome to bring the tools of your creativity (any media of art, music, writing, creating) to work with as we discuss the books and find inspiration for your creative submissions.
Walk-ins welcome!

Academic Interests
I am interested broadly in issues of power, negotiation, and community in literature, intertextuality in literature, and cultural hybridity. My most recent work is on post-colonial literature, particularly South African literature and J. M. Coetzee; I have also published and presented conference papers on Athol Fugard (South Africa), Chinua Achebe (Nigeria), Derek Walcott (St. Lucia), and Earl Lovelace (Trinidad). Teaching interests include South African literature and society, British literature to 1800, European classics in translation, Shakespeare, and colonialism in literature.
