The Department of Classics

2007 HOMERathon

The Department's first-ever Homerathon, a non-stop reading of Homer's Iliad, took place over more than twenty-four hours in Cook-Dewitt Center on March 29 and 30, 2007. Participants included President Thomas J. Haas, Provost Gayle Davis, Dean of CLAS Fred Antczak, Dean of Students Bart Merkle, and Dean of CoIS Wendy Wenner, plus faculty and students too numerous to mention here.

The event concluded with a performance of the twenty-fourth and final book by poet and translator Stanley Lombardo of the University of Kansas.
