How do gender roles determine the way women’s voices are heard, interpreted, and hindered? Lauren Caldwell, professor of classics at UMass Amherst, joins choreographer Sonia Plumb to examine how gender roles defined and limited a woman’s ability to carve out personal and professional lives in ancient Greek and Roman cultures. Plumb shares how Caldwell’s research led to her contemporary dance Penelope’s Odyssey.
