University of Warwick
The departments of Classics and Ancient History, Film & TV, and History of Art are combining to create an exciting and innovatory linked programme based upon the ancient world and its representation in art and modern media. You will learn about the ancient world, about ancient images, and the representation of the human body in the classical world; how modern technology and modern media such as film and TV are bringing the ancient world to life; and how classical themes run through and inform the history of art. We are seeking students who have an interest in any of these three disciplines. The proposed programme will form a coherent whole but will also give a flavour of what it will be like to study each of the individual disciplines. Above all, we would like to promote the innovatory and interdisciplinary approach of university scholarship, and how subjects can inform one another. Interdisciplinary sessions will be supplemented by 'in focus' sessions for each of the three subjects in the stream, supported by skills sessions on critical thinking and visual literacy - essential skills for working with images.
