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.


My reasons for participating are because I received my BA in Classical Civilizations and my Bachelor's thesis was on the Iliad. I felt it was my duty and privilege to participate. Watch both videos below. I am in video #2 at the 5h20m mark.


Enjoy!
