“Greek Drama V” (July 5-8, 2017)
is the fifth of the periodic Pacific Rim Greek Drama conferences exploring ancient Greek drama and its ongoing cultural legacy. Each of the four previous conferences have been held in Australia (University of Sydney in 1982 and 2002) or New Zealand (University of Canterbury, NZ in 1992 and Victoria University of Wellington in 2007). These conferences have consistently drawn the most prominent international scholars working on ancient Greek theatre, as well as emerging scholars and graduate students. Greek Drama V, hosted at the University of British Columbia, will be the first time the conference has been held in the Northern Hemisphere.
