The Order of Orgies: Sex and the Cinematic Romans
Location: Bolton Hall: Davis Auditorium
Time: 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Speaker: Stacie Raucci, Assistant Professor of Classics, Union College
Join Professor Raucci as she explores the sexual mores of the Romans as depicted on the silver screen and on television. We know the Romans were decadent, but what do depictions of Roman decadence say about contemporary attitudes toward sex and sexuality? Does orgiastic excess hold up a mirror to the viewing audience?
Professor Raucci received her B.A. from Wellesley College and her M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Chicago. Her scholarly interests focus on the reception of the ancient world, and her course offerings include the ancient world in film and sex and gender in classical antiquity.Sponsor:
