Jane Cahill

Jane CahillJane has taught in the Department of Classics at the University of Winnipeg for 38 years. In her book, Her Kind, (Broadview Press 1995) she tells Greek myths in the voices of the women who appear in them, such as Jocasta, who knows full well the identity of the young man who shares her bed and Medusa, for whom the isolation caused by her dangerous face is almost too much to bear.
Jane was a member of the storytelling trio Earthstory alongside Kay Stone and Mary Louise Chown. Alone and with Earthstory Jane told traditional folk tales and world myths in performances in libraries, galleries and schools, at conferences, storytelling festivals and at Magic of One concerts. She was a regular contributor to Ron Robinson’s Weekend Morning Show on CBC radio with a series called “It’s all Greek to me” and can currently be heard on the Saturday Morning Show with Ron and Carol McKibbon on CKUW.
