We will be hearing from Yolanda Panou a second year PhD student at the University of Edinburgh. Yolanda’s research areas are classical tragedy (both Greek and Roman), classical mythology and, more specifically, the representations of infanticide and child killing in the ancient world and theatre. Alongside the tragic plays, her main sources also cover the legal, social and philosophical background of classical Athens, early Republican and Neronian Rome.
She will deliver her paper entitled: “Becoming a victim of μανία: Representations of child killing on the Athenian stage”
