|Title||Greek drama in the first six decades of the twentieth century: tradition, identity, migration|
In the context of Epidaurus, she argues, dominant cultural discourses and exclusive policies promoting a traditional approach to the performance of Greek texts come face-to-face with modern theater practices, audiences composed of audibly responsive Greeks as well as tourists, and - in recent decades - productions of Greek drama by non-Greek theater companies. Oedipus, Antigone, and Dramas of the African Diaspora (2007) builds on earlier works such as Kevin J. Wetmore's The Athenian Sun in an African Sky (2002) and Black Dionysus (2003). n Particularly pertinent to the issues raised by several essays in this special issue is the important recent collection Classics and National Cultures (2010); furthermore, current work on the modern reception of ancient Greek historians for example, the forthcoming collection Thucydides and the Modern World.
