In this presentation, Clara Bosak-Schroeder (she/they) will read from a multimedia digital book project that blends creative nonfiction and scholarship to investigate how modern and contemporary artists from marginalized standpoints are reimagining ancient Mediterranean monuments. The focus of the presentation will be Hive (2020), a collaboration between sound artist Lakshmi Ramgopal and sculptor Nancy Davidson that transforms the cult statue of Artemis of Ephesus. After sharing this work in progress, Bosak-Schroeder will consider the larger aims and questions of the project: How can white classicists turn towards artists of color while remaining implicated in the critique of their own discipline? What are the affordances of non-academic genres? How can readers become engaged in creating new canons?
