Samuel Alexander Building
Professor Rhiannon Ash (University of Oxford) will be talking on Tiberius in Space: Proxemics and the Portrayal of a Princeps.
Professor Ash has kindly provided the following abstract:
This talk considers the many creative ways in which Tacitus depicts the emperor Tiberius operating and interacting with others within the spatial dimension. Whether Tiberius is too close or too far away, his mishandling of public and private space is a prominent and expressive feature of his depiction in Annals 1-6.
The meeting will take place in room A7 of the Samuel Alexander Building.
