CLAS 310 - Classical Antiquity on Screen


This course explores the cinematic and screen portrayals adapted from the literature, mythology, and/or history of Ancient Greece and Rome. Students will analyze film, television, and other forms of screen media alongside ancient primary source material (in translation) and secondary scholarship of Classical reception and film studies. Through reading, viewing, writing, and discussing, students will trace the influence of the Classical tradition on later forms of storytelling and, in turn, investigate how modern media shapes the way we understand the past. Topics or themes may vary.
