History Lecture: The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly
June 30, 2014 - 7:00pm

For just over a century, we have been entertained by moving pictures. The ancient world has always been a popular subject, from Cleopatra (1917) to Ben Hur (1959) to Gladiator (2000). Not just in cinema but on television as well; from the children’s show, The Roman Mysteries (2007–08), to the more adult program, HBO’s Rome (2005–07). Learn how to distinguish between the good, the bad, and the ugly. Lecture by historian Lauren A.M. Hammersen. Free.
