Dr. Nikolas Kakkoufa Presents Talk on Cavafy at Columbia University

September 10, 2019

NEW YORK – Columbia University’s Program in Hellenic Studies and The Consulate General of Greece in New York invite you to a talk by Dr. Nikolas Kakkoufa of Columbia University on “A vision all its own of flesh: Bodies in and beyond Cavafy’s work,” Thursday, September 12, 6:15 PM, in 930 Schermerhorn Hall at Columbia University.

The talk traces how the process of identity building and uncovering of sexual selves registers on the homosexual body. What types of bodies are produced and constructed through Cavafy’s poetry? Does Cavafy’s work constitute a rupture in the model of queer writing about the body of the 19th and 20th century?


LONDON — Indian writer Geetanjali Shree and American translator Daisy Rockwell won the International Booker Prize on Thursday for "Tomb of Sand," a vibrant novel with a boundary-crossing 80-year-old heroine.
