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.

Alastair Blanshard is the Paul Eliadis Professor of Classics and Ancient 
History at the University of Queensland. He is director of UQ's Centre for 
Western Civilisation and is the program director for the Advanced Humanities
