20 February 2020
This cross-disciplinary collaboration brings together academics and students from literature, classics, film studies, history, intercultural studies and translation studies for a practical exercise in audio-description.
By investigating the sound and image of ancient Rome in cinema and by exploring the visual and aural embodiment of Julius Caesar in television and social media, the project compares representations of Rome’s past.
It includes a public screening of a silent film with live accompaniment by the pianist and composer Michele Scanga which took place on 7 May 2019.
