Visualizing Antiquity: CACW 2012

University of Victoria

March 16, 2012 – March 18, 2012


No conception, ancient or modern, of the ancient world is entirely objective; every vision of antiquity carries its own agenda.  It is easier to see the prejudices of other eras than it is to interrogate our own.

How is our vision of the ancient world affected by our cultural values, prejudices and experiences? How did the cultural, historical and intellectual contexts of previous generations of artists, scholars and intellectuals affect their conception of antiquity, and the uses to which they put it? How did the artists and intellectuals of antiquity themselves envision and make use of their past?
