Professor Alastair Blanshard (University of Queensland)

Surveying the Reception of Rome: Sex, violence, myths, and factoids
This lecture offers a broad overview of some of the dominant observable trends in the reception of ancient Roman history and culture. It looks at which particular Roman stories and motifs have flourished, and why. It locates these trends within both historical and generic contexts. In particular, it is interested in charting the ways in Rome has been framed as place of sex, violence, and (a very Protestant version of) Christianity.
