As mentioned in the About page, this website is the product of a Digital-Humanities seminar on the topic of ‘Spectacle in the Ancient World’ at the University of British Columbia. The following are links to other formidable projects created for this course by my wonderful classmates:
Ana Golland – The Spectacle of Martyrdom
Andrei Mihailiuk – Mapping the Roman Triumph
Bethany Brothers – The Spectacles of Apuleius
Breeze Donner – Sexual Spectacle in Suetonius
Christian Brady – Epic Spectacle: Podcasting Lucan’s Pharsalia
Heather Odell – De Spectaculis and Latin Digital Textual Analysis
Patricia Taylor – An Image Map of the Route of the Pompa Circensis
The following is a list of a couple websites on the subject of the spectacular human body, freak shows, side shows, and the display of human beings. Enjoy, be amazed, and never stop wondering.
