ARLINGTON - Modern man's perception of ancient Greece legends is the topic of a free colloquium titled "Tragedy, Cinema and Scandal: Modern Receptions of Ancient Greek Myths" from 2 to 5 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 10, in the Red River Room, E.H. Hereford University Center, 300 W. First Street.
The colloquium focuses on classical reception studies, a rapidly growing sub-field of classical studies that focuses on the relationship between Greco-Roman antiquities and later, post-classical civilizations that adapt and interpret the literature, art and ideas of the ancients. Previous approaches have emphasized the influence of the Greeks and Romans on later civilizations. Classical reception studies shift the emphasis to the resourcefulness of later cultures in appropriating cultural materials for their own diverse purposes.
