Fatma Mili, provost and executive vice president for Academic Affairs, was among those who participated in this year's Homerathon.

This was the eighth running of the event presented by the Classics Department. The event, "Homerathon 8: Into the Multiverse!" was held September 28-29.

The event included an art history lecture, yard games, readings and responses to readings and more. And, of course, an exploration of Homer's "Iliad."

Part of the event's description: "A multidisciplinary exploration of love, betrayal, war, loss, pain, reconciliation and other experiences that define our common humanity."

Mili was among many university participants who took their turns holding the scepter as they read from "Iliad."
