CFP: Modern Interpretations of Antigone (11/1/05; collection)

Antigone's Transformation: Modern Interpretations of the Classic Figure

Antigone is a figure of fascination. She has captured the attention of great
critical minds such as Hegel, Heidegger, Irigaray, and Butler; playwrights
continue to offer new ways of interpreting her actions. Why the continued
interest in Antigone's story? What are we to make of the newer, more modern
translations of Sophocles's original? How are we to interact with the mass
of critical scholarship written about Antigone?
