Antigone in the Library

The Antigone of Sophocles is being discussed in multiple venues on the Williams campus this semester. The Antigone Project, a course in comparative literature and theater, explores the richness and meaning of the play by understanding it as a performance, social practice, text, translation, and adaptation. On Saturday September 30, the Williams ’62 center will host Theater of War Productions as they perform Antigone in Ferguson, a staging of the classic tragedy in light of the 2014 killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. We invite you to view selections of the libraries’ holdings relating to the works of Sophocles, which have been recorded on papyrus, parchment, and paper, and been performed numerous times on the Williams campus. On temporary display through October 9 in the Instruction Gallery (Sawyer 455), during regular hours (M-F 10-5).
