Professor Warhaft will explore her recent work on lament and political protest, using music and film clips to explore Theodorakis’s use of ancient material in film-score and opera, and how it addresses modern Greek political issues.

Recent books on lament and protest include: Dangerous Voices: Women’s Laments and Greek Literature; The Cue for Passion: Grief and Its Political Use (Harvard University Press); Theodorakis: Myth and Politics in Modern Greek Music, and recent chapter ‘No Consolation: The Lamenting Voice and Public Memory’ (OUP). She is also a poet, translator, and musician.
