Classical Reception

This programme enables students to engage with the different ways in which the classical past, and its literature, art and ideas, have been received and appropriated in the post-classical world. The course offers a broad, theoretically-informed approach to the subject, to help students develop the skills and knowledge necessary for interdisciplinary studies. Students will be encouraged to reflect on reception theories and methodologies and to consider the ways in which classical material is reinterpreted in different contexts. Students will also develop a solid foundation in new disciplinary areas linked to their own research interests, such as history of art or film theory.
