UNCSA presents Coriolanus this month! One of Shakespeare’s last written tragedies, Coriolanus follows the career of Roman general Caius Marcius who earns his name after defeating the Volscian army, but he struggles to become a leader for the people of Rome. In this production, the cast will play several different characters to enhance the audience’s perception of the society. Who holds the power in the end?

The Division of Liberal Arts at UNCSA will also host a panel discussion, titled “Found in Translation? A panel discussion on issues of translation,” which is a free virtual event on Wednesday, February 16th, at 5 p.m. EST. Panelists include Sean San José, Mohammed Albakry, professor of English and linguistics at Middle Tennessee State University, and Joseph McAlhany, assistant professor in the University of Connecticut Department of History, and moderated by Hans Gabriel.
