Homerathon 2021

The University of Iowa Classics department hosted a really fun crowd sourced reading of Homer's Iliad. Their goal was to collect volunteers to record themselves reading passages from the Iliad and edit them all together to have a complete video recording of the epic. 261 people -- including me! -- participated to make this 17-hour video.
