Starting May 22: Sophus Helle on Gilgamesh

“I see [Gilgamesh] as a composite entity. I see it as a place where all sorts of things, all sorts of voices, all sorts of cultural scripts, all sorts of historical circumstances, all sorts of intentions, all sorts of readerly projections [...] come together.” —Sophus Helle

Join us for a deep dive into Gilgamesh’s poetry and history with Sophus Helle, celebrated scholar, translator, and cultural historian. 

Three sessions: May 22, May 29, & June 5
