Annual Fall Lecture

  • Fordham University Lincoln Center 113 West 60th Street (South Lounge) New York, NY, 10023 (map)

Antonis Kotsonas of the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World, NYU, will give a lecture on his work, "The Labyrinth: from the Bronze Age to Modern Times."

As the speaker himself explains: “The Cretan Labyrinth has fascinated scholars and the wider public since antiquity. Traditionally, it has been regarded as a monument that did once exist, and it has been widely identified with the Minoan palace of Knossos. I argue that this approach has underestimated the variety and complexity of references to the Cretan Labyrinth and its capacity for metamorphosis from abstract memory to tangible monument and for relocation from one Cretan site to another.”
