Rubino Gives Paper at Film and History Conference
October 4, 2012
Carl A. Rubino, the Winslow Professor of Classics, traveled to Milwaukee, Wisc., to present a paper at the Annual Film and History Conference, which took place from Sept. 26 to 28. The theme of this year's conference was "Film and Myth," and Rubino's paper was titled "Wounds That Will Not Heal: Heroism and Innocence in Shane and the Iliad."
The 1953 film Shane is one of the films featured in Classical Studies 360, "Film and the Classics," a course that Rubino is teaching this semester.
On Sept. 12, Rubino presented a version of the paper titled "Why Shane Will Never Come Back" at The Other Side, a community center in Utica, as part of the 2012-2012 Imagining America series.
