Lecture by Garrett Fagan

In this talk, Fagan examines the theatrical and artificial components of Roman arena spectacles, from the performers' costumes to the elaborate stagecraft deployed to enhance the shows. Despite all the real violence going on, the Roman spectators were presented in such shows with carefully packaged and structured events that shared many points of contact with largescale spectacles of our modern age.Fagan closes with an examination of what the psychological implications of such packaging might mean for the experience of watching.
