Titian’s Women

Europa, Andromeda, and Beyond

Friday, October 15, 6 - 7:30 pm
This is a virtual program

Due to international COVID-19 restrictions affecting our presenter’s ability to travel, Titian’s Women: Europa, Andromeda, and Beyond with scholar Mary Beard has been changed from an in-person event in Calderwood Hall to a VIRTUAL EVENT on Zoom on Friday, October 15 from 6 to 7:30 pm ET.

Violence against women – whether rape or abduction – is central to the subject matter of Titian’s poesie, or “painted poetries.” Renowned art historian, Cambridge classicist, and best-selling author Mary Beard will unpack the history of these troubling stories, their origins in Antiquity, their centrality to this series of Renaissance mythologies and their relevance today.

Don’t miss your chance to join this live conversation with and pose your own questions to a professor who has been described as “a celebrity, a national treasure, and the world’s most famous classist”.  The recording of this program will not be released online until November 15.
