Interested in reading some of the New Testament, in the original Greek? Or are you just curious about the ancient text? If so, you are invited to our KOINĒ Reading Group, which meets Wednesdays at 4:30 pm in Bryant 006, the conference room on the ground floor. Consider yourself invited, once and for all times! The tentative plan is to meet every week at the same time and place.
Κοινή (Koinē) is the “common” or “universal” Greek in which the Christian Bible was written. Reading and learning the language of this text will be the focus of our meetings. Anyone interested in practicing his/her Greek is welcome to attend, whether as a novice or an expert. Copies of the text will be made available to those who do not yet have one. Special efforts will be made to explain the text to current students of Greek 101 and 201. We’re reading in Luke this term.

Tuesday, October 23, at 7 p.m., they will perform two experimental, collaborative pieces that involve Carson’s poetry along with dance and film. The titles of the pieces are “Cassandra Float Can” and “Possessive Used as a Drink (Me): A Lecture on Pronouns in the Form of 15 Sonnets.” These pieces will also feature several students from the English and Theatre Departments at the University of Mississippi. The performance will be held at the small theatre space at the Ford Center. It is free and open to the public but as seating is limited it would be a good idea to come early.
