BECOMING CLASSICAL: ART AND THE REVOLUTION IN VALUES IN 5TH-CENTURY B.C. GREECE

Saturday 19 October: 3:00pm - 4:00pm

Faculty of Classics, G19, Sidgwick Avenue, CB3 9DA

We associate Classical Greece with the impassive and remarkably uniform young men that populate the Parthenon frieze and classical gravestones. But we rarely ask why these young men dominate Classical art. Prof Robin Osborne looks at the revolution that brought the Classical man into existence, and the complete transformation of values that these Classical figures carry with them.

Access information: G19 is on the ground floor and has step-free access, with space for wheel-chairs. Seating is wooden lecture-room fold down chairs and space can be restricted.
