On February 26, 2024, Tobias Myers, Associate Professor of Classics at Deree – The American College of Greece, presented the inaugural lecture of the Hellenic Studies Seminar Series entitled “Odysseus through the Looking Glass: On Knowing One’s Self in Homer.” Professor Myers, author of Homer’s Dive Audience: The Iliad’s Reception on Mount Olympus (OUP, 2019), spoke about ideas of the self and self-knowledge in Homer’s Odyssey as seen through Odysseus’ own retelling of his harrowing journey home to the Phaeacians. Organized by the Institute for Hellenic Culture and the Liberal Arts, attendees, which included Hellenic Studies faculty, fellows, students as well as guests from outside the college, participated in a lively discussion following the lecture and enjoyed refreshments and snacks in the Deree Faculty Lounge.
