The Lucrece Project is a graduate working research group sponsored by the Humanities Initiative at New York University. We are a collective of artists and academics who are exploring and challenging the borders between 'creative' and 'scholarly' work and thought. By examining the story of Lucrece in all its genres, media, and contexts, and by producing our own collaborative, cross-disciplinary versions of the story, we are discovering the overlaps and meetings points between our different methods and working processes.
The Lucrece Project was made possible by so many people and departments. We would like to thank: Professor Jane Tylus, Asya Berger, and the NYU Humanities Initiative; Professors Mary Poovey and Cliff Siskin, and Tom Augst of the NYU English Department; the administrative staff of the department, especially Lissette Roarabaugh and Susan McKeon; and the incredibly helpful and generous staff of NYU Campus Media and NYU Security. Finally, thank you to all of the actors, musicians, and crew members who made our 2011 conference and concert possible.
