Ray recently interviewed Lindsay Powell about Caligula. I asked Ray for show notes. This is what he gave me. “We talked of keeping the sources in context, considering the times they lived it and agenda. He went deep. Then his analysis of the events in the German border and the coast of Britain. And his apparent fickleness, which in a ruler, effects everyone but also how people like Suetonius probably used that.” See? That’s what I have to work with.

The interviews in this episode of Classics Confidential were recorded at a workshop entitled The Forgotten Other: Disability Studies and the Classical Body. The workshop took place at Kings College in June 2018: it was organised by Dr Ellen Adams, Senior Lecturer in Classical Art & Archaeology at Kings College London, and Dr Emma-Jayne Graham, Senior Lecturer in Classical Studies at The Open University.
