Parrish Elizabeth Wright
Mythologies of Identity and Alliance in Southern Italy

In this talk, Parrish Elizabeth Wright will discuss the ways in which cities and ethnic groups in southern Italy from the sixth to third centuries BCE used mythology and foundation narratives as tools to mediate across groups. Through the figure of Heracles, she shows how Greeks and native Italians living in close proximity negotiated alliances based on shared mythology.

Wright is the Samuel H. Kress Foundation Rome Prize Fellow in Ancient Studies and a PhD candidate in the Interdepartmental Program in Greek and Roman History at the University of Michigan.
