Richard Fletcher (Classics) will talk about using contemporary non-linguistic, visual media to explain and explore the translation of ideas and concepts. Julia Nelson Hawkins (Classics) will discuss how she teaches the ways in which classical Greek texts in translation influenced 20th century court cases such as Roe v. Wade and Evans v. Romer.
