Academia in Drama and more on BBC's Ancient Rome
Although, I have always wondered why, in CSI-whatever, Horatio's friends don't pick up skulls and say, "Alas, poor Yorick, I knew him, Horatio."
In completely unrelated news, Mary Beard has posted about the panel discussion I mentioned the other day. I was hoping she'd post about it, which is why I didn't provide quite as much as I might otherwise have done.
*Edit to add: I suppose the play Proof by David Auburn is another example of academia in drama, and that is, honestly, one of my favourite modern plays.
