2021 Dalhousie Classics Alumni Summer Text Seminar

The Classics department was looking forward to the 2020 Dalhousie Classics Alumni Text Seminar thanks to your enthusiastic response regarding our plans to study Sophocles’ and Euripides’ Electra plays. Unfortunately, we had to postpone those plans due to COVID-19 as campus will not be open for us to hold this event. We considered holding the event online but we have instead decided to postpone the Electra seminar until 2021. 

Our hope is to begin our event on Friday July 30th, 2021 with a screening of Richard Strauss’ opera Elektra followed by a reception, and then have our discussion sessions on Saturday July 31st and Sunday August 1st. Luckily, you now have over a year to clear your schedule and convince your old Dal Classics friends to join us! 

Our first Alumni seminar last summer was such a success and we are saddened to have to postpone the second iteration, but we hope you will understand and join us once again in 2021. We look forward to seeing you there!
