Culture and the Arts – The Imperial Image

The idea of a politician ‘spinning’ their public image is one which is very familiar from our contemporary media; and so this exploration of a Roman politician and his successful propaganda campaign is both highly relevant and engaging. This component is the study of the visual and material culture of Augustus Caesar.
