Student Spotlight: Troy in Literature, Film, and Canvas!

By: Prof. Jennifer Phenix

In LITT20065GD: Troy in Literature and Film, students were asked to create a visual piece to accompany their research paper that captures the hero Odysseus as a renewed Homeric hero. Em Kessler, Serena Westbroek, and Starlin (Lei Wei) Lu, all of whom are in year 2 of the B.A.A. Animation program, each created a visual piece that reflects Odysseus’ transition from “zero to hero.” After being trapped on the island of Kalypso for seven years, longing for home, the hero is about to re-emerge as a new and revised Homeric hero. Check out these amazing depictions!
