Description

As the 2016-2017 John B. and Mary K. McDiarmid Lecturer, Dr. Barchiesi will be speaking on “Virgil’s Geopoetics,” addressing questions of how Virgil conceptualizes boundaries, colonies, space, and connectivity. Says Dr. Barchiesi of this project on Virgil’s Aeneid, “the object is the dynamics formed by the representation of the world, in particular its geopoetics, when it encounters, through the epic narrative, the active participation of the poetic text into the making, aetiology, and transformation of this world.”
