      Newhouse Center Faculty Series: Carol Dougherty

      The Question of the Foreigner in Sophocles’ Antigone

      Newhouse Center faculty fellow Carol Dougherty explores the ways that Sophocles’ Antigone brings immigration, marriage, and burial together to destabilize Athens’ own democratic strategies for accommodating the stranger within the city in ways that resonate with contemporary issues of citizenship, mobility, and political identity.

      Carol Dougherty is the Margaret E. Deffenbaugh and LeRoy T. Carlson Professor in Comparative Literature and professor of classical studies at Wellesley College.

      Generously supported by: the Newhouse Center for the Humanities.
