The Young and the Restless: Receptions of a Republican Caesar

22 March 2019 4:00pm6:00pm
Like many ancient figures, Julius Caesar is often used to promote or diminish political power in the present. Different images or tropes of Caesar have been employed by modern authors to convey a desired message on the uses or abuses of political power today. For example, an author will focus on one aspect of Caesar’s character and will often portray him either as a popular politician, a brilliant general or a ruthless dictator.

Work in Life and Death: Corduban Common Workers and Coppersmiths

22 March 2019 4:00pm6:00pm
During the Roman empire many occupational workers chose to represent themselves and others by their trade on Latin inscriptions in a variety of contexts. This practice is present not only in Italy, but, notably, also in the western provinces of Hispania and North Africa. It is important to analyse these provincial examples in order to gain a better understanding of both the social and the economic roles of working-class traders in the Roman provinces.

Feminism Reloaded? The Serial Debate on Sexual Harassment and Sexual Violence, or: What’s New about #MeToo?

22 March 2019 3:00pm4:30pm
Sexual harassment and sexual violence have been an issue of debate among social reformers and political activists long before the term feminism itself was coined. These serial discussions underscore how ubiquitous sexual violence remains in the power dynamic of human relations and social hierarchies and how, as a consequence, feminist critique has had to repeat its central arguments incessantly for centuries. The insistent return of the controversy also demonstrates, though, how feminist concerns mutate along with transforming social and cultural economies and media ecologies, which newly frame, channel, and absorb our attention.
