ENGLISH 300CY      Cluster Course: Ancient World/Cinema
This course will explore the tradition of depicting the ancient mediterranean world film from the early silent era to the present. Topics to be covered include the ways that filmmakers respond to literary and historical sources from the ancient world, interact with the artistic tradition of films about the ancient world, the relation of these films to other works by the same creative personnel (directors, actors, writers, producers, etc.), and the political and cultural contexts in which the films were released. This course is cross-listed with HISTORY 400CY.
