Symposium Reimagined

In this collaborative book project, Carrie Jenkins and I are reimagining Plato’s Symposium in a hybrid poetry/fiction format. You’ll find our own versions of the speeches of the text – of Phaedrus, of Aristophanes, of Diotima, etc – as inspired by Tarot cards, outer space, a love affair between Sappho and Medusa, and much more. We’re holding a workshop at UBC on April 27, 2018 to share a draft of the book.
