Dr. Murray examines the role that epic discourse in the Iliad, Odyssey, Argonautica and the Aeneid gives to war in defining, legitimating and naturalizing the racialized hierarchies that obtain among mortals in the real world. She focuses on how war put the male body at risk of being racialized because heroic glory tends to rest on humiliating and dehumanizing other men. Her talk argues that the ancient Greek and Roman epic poets presented insightful and nuanced ways of seeing and critiquing the way war produces race.
