CLASSICAL TECHNOLOGY CENTER ON THE WEB INVITES PAPERS ON THE SUBJECT OF MODERN MOVIES ON ANCIENT CIVILIZATIONS!
Modern film loves the Classics, and we love articles about those films. Did you see Troy? Did you note differences between Homer’s version and the film? Alexander the Great may have been panned by film critics, but how would it hold up according to Classicists? We invite papers that deal with any topic related to ancient subjects in modern films, to build upon our foundation in the subject area. One of our most appealing articles compares the film Gladiator with historical evidence, and this publication has become the web’s most popular article on the film. We also feature a student-made film chronicling Caesar’s ancient battles.
Critiques about modern films dealing with ancient subjects wanted! Classics Technology Center on the Web (CTCWeb, www.ablemedia.com/ctcweb), an online publication for materials about the Classics and Classics teaching, invites papers on these the topic of ancient film for its 2006 publication schedule.
