Prof. Futrell Speaks on the Assassination of Julius Caesar


This past Wednesday, Prof. Alison Futrell spoke to Phi Alpha Theta about theatrical and media representations of the assassination of Julius Caesar. We watched clips from Xena: Warrior Princess and HBO’s Rome, viewed stills from various productions of Shakespeare’s play,¬†and even learned how John Wilkes Booth’s experiences with the play may have fed into his later assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Thanks to Prof. Futrell for sharing her work with us!

Prof. Futrell is teaching HIST 404C Cleopatra: Power, Passion, Propaganda on TuTh 11-12:15pm in the fall 2017 semester. The course is a great way for majors to fill their pre-1500 requirements!
