Two Useful Links Coming Your Way

The first (created, I believe, by Bryce Walker and Bret Mulligan) is the page for the Bi-College (i.e. Haverford College and Bryn Mawr College) 'ORALi-Tea', an event dedicated to the oral performance of ancient poetry. The page has some handy links to recordings of modern renditions of ancient lit by Stanley Lombardo and others and a nice bibliography on reading aloud and related topics.

The second will be especially useful if you live in the Philadelphia area or in relatively close proximity thereto. Bret Mulligan has put together a page listing all the Classics events going on in the area. From that page we learn that Carole Newlands will be speaking at Penn tomorrow (13 April). Her topic (as listed on Penn's page) appears to relate to a character mentioned just yesterday on the Campus: 'Problems of Violence in Ovid: Philomela and Marsyas'.

Kudos to the creators of these pages!
