The Odyssey, Nostalgia and the Lost Home

Media Title

The Odyssey, Homer's tale of the wandering hero, has loaned its name to the English language for the very idea of a long wandering voyage. In this talk, Dr. Peter Struck, Associate Professor of Classical Studies, University of Pennsylvania, discusses the idea of a displacement in the epic poem, and considers how Odysseus negotiates his status as someone separated from where he belongs.
