We are delighted to welcome Margherita Laera, Senior Lecturer in Drama and Theatre at the University of Kent, to deliver the guest lecture at our 22nd annual joint postgraduate symposium, which this year looks at the theme 'Survival and Disobedience in the Theory and Practice of Greek and Roman Drama'.

Dr Laera will be discussing Ubah Cristina Ali Farah’s adaptation of Antigone, Antigone Power, performed in Palermo in 2018 by the company Sutta Scupa with both professional and non-professional actors, mainly from a migrant and refugee background.

Feel free to join us for the public lecture - free, no booking (and attendance at the rest of the symposium is not required).
