Winslow Professor of Classics Carl A. Rubino presented at the Film & History conference held Oct. 29-Nov. 1 in Madison, Wisc. The theme of this year’s conference was “Golden Ages: Styles and Personalities, Genres and Histories.” The annual conference was hosted by the Wisconsin Center for Film and Theater Research (WCFTR) at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Rubino was a member of a panel during a workshop on “Teaching and Researching in Classics with Screen Texts.” He discussed the research he did last spring as the recipient of a Christian A. Johnson Fellowship for Teaching Enhancement.
He also presented a paper titled “Rome, America, and the Golden Age: Spartacus (1960) and Gladiator (2000)” in a session on “The Two Golden Ages of Spartacus (1960 & 2010).”
