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 6th to 3rd 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.
