Watch! Democratic Readings of Addison’s Cato

Hosted by the Department of Classics

The second event in our Democracy Then & Now lecture series. Judith P Hallett provided lavender handouts for our second DTN event, so that even people who had not yet read Cato, could follow along with important textual references. Now that’s what I call inclusive! Hallett explores the evolving reactions of classical scholars to the play’s representations of race and gender from the 1990s to the present day.
