  • Episode 32: An Interview with John Bracey

    30/06/2020 Duración: 01h13min

    Welcome to a special episode of MythTake! Rather than bring you our usual format of myth analysis, we're doing something a little different. We're giving this episode over to talk about race in classics. The Black Lives Matter movement has been gaining renewed momentum, and hashtags like #shutdownacademia and #blackintheivory are highlighting the experiences of Black people in academia. Classics itself is a predominately white whose area of research gets co-opted for white supremacist causes. To push back against this, and to help elevate Black voices in Classics, we put out a Twitter call for Black classicists to use our platform to share their stories. Today, we're pleased to bring you this interview with John Bracey. John Bracey, aka @magisterbracey on Twitter, is a Latin teacher in Massachusetts teaching Latin using the Comprehensible Input technique.. He has an MA in Classics from Boston College and in 2016 he was named Latin Teacher of the Year by the Massachusetts Foreign Language Association. He leads

  • Episode 31: Heroes in the Time of COVID

    18/05/2020 Duración: 57min

    We're baaack! We've been hearing a lot about heroes in the news lately and it's got us thinking. The word's being used to describe doctors, nurses, paramedics, delivery people, truck drivers, and grocery store workers-- all the people who are keeping our society going through the COVID-19 pandemic. But what do we really mean when we call someone a hero? Do our heroes today resemble the heroes of myth? Or are we using the label "hero" to escape societal responsibilities?Join Darrin and Alison for this special pandemic issue of MythTake.
