Sappho’s Luminosity; presented by Zachary Borst, Classics doctoral candidate at UCLA. 
“My approach to light offers us another way of thinking about how temporality and memory are represented in Sappho. I argue in my paper that Sappho’s depiction of the visual qualities of light throughout her corpus may help us understand, for example, why Hades can both be represented as dark and visible, and how her desire to see illuminates the darkness of Hades and brings it to life. Similarly, recent work on temporality in film and photography has focused on what light makes visible and how it captures aspects of time.
