The Latin Programme: 2022 So Far...

The Latest Latin Programme Lecture 

On June 1st at 7pm we held our sixth Latin Programme Lecture, delivered by Maria Wyke on the subject ‘Representations of Ancient Roman Women in Silent Cinema’.

From its earliest days, silent film gave narrative and visual agency to Roman women in its historical reconstructions. Storylines were drawn from modern representations of the Roman past that had already given women larger roles to play than those on offer from the primary sources. Gesture, words and accompanying music often worked to colour a Roman woman’s story in empathetic terms. Maria’s talk explored some of cinema’s strategies for feminising Roman history and consider some of the reasons why they were developed, including a desire to draw women into cinemas as spectators.

The Latin Programme Poetry Prize

Earlier this year, we were thrilled to announce the winner of The Latin Programme Poetry Prize 2021. Our judges were poets Arji Manuelpillai, Brighde Mullins, and Rebecca Watts who were all blown away by the standard of entries for a second year running. It was extremely difficult to whittle the entries down to a longlist and shortlist, but the process was a real delight. Read the winning poem and the rest of the longlist here:
