Our Mythical Childhood...

The Reception of Classical Antiquity in Children’s and Young Adults’ Culture in Response to Regional and Global Challenges

'45 Reception

In this cycle we wish to share the discoveries of our team and all our friends and colleagues, incl. students and the young faculty members, within the field of the reception of Classical Antiquity.

We have decided for the format of 45 seconds only, as it corresponds to a typical school lesson in Poland (45 min.). We have been also inspired by the “30SecondClassics” project by the University of Cambridge (with the kind permission from Dr. Ingo Gildenhard), that is focused on the ancient history and culture. Our aim is to present the most recent or the most interesting cases of the new forms of life of Classical Antiquity around us: books, movies, monuments, cultural phenomena, etc.

45 seconds – it is a challenge indeed, but also an exciting adventure we are happy to embark on. The movies will be registered in various languages, always with English subtitles.
