|25||Wed||Wednesday 25 February, 7.15pm - Great Hall, Hellenic Centre The Impact of Greek Culture: Tragedy and Food - New Research Insights Two short lectures by University of Exeter scholars which will draw on cutting-edge research to illuminate unrecognised aspects of the impact of Greek culture, both in the ancient world and beyond: Greek tragedy has long been seen as a major influence on Western literature and drama. Matthew Wright’s talk, In Search of Lost Tragedy, draws on his recent research on fragments of lost Greek tragedies to give a taste of the wealth of dramatic material from writers less well-known than Sophocles and Euripides. Erica Rowan’s lecture, entitled Greek Food in the Roman Kitchen?, uses new research techniques based on analysis of food remains to show how the Greek diet helped to shape Roman patterns of eating in antiquity. Free entry but please confirm attendance on 020 7563 9835 or at firstname.lastname@example.org Organised by Exeter University and the Hellenic Centre.|
