Homerathon 2020

Homerathon 2020 (Virtual)

Homerathon 2020 is organized by the University of Iowa Department of Classics and Eta Sigma Phi, the undergraduate honors society for classics students. Under normal situations, it is read aloud in person in a public spot on UI's campus. Readers sign up to participate in a continuous reading of Homer’s texts. Last year, we read all of the Iliad and half of the Odyssey over the course of 23 straight hours. This year, we're reading just the Odyssey (in English translation, of course!).
