Welcome to the second in our series of films from the 2011 Classical Association conference in Durham. We captured footage of some of the fabulous posters on display at the conference, starting with this one made by Heather Rae, who is a PhD student at the university of Glasgow. In this clip, Heather takes us through representations of the gigantomachy in art and literature, from the sculpted frieze on the Siphnian treasury at Delphi (pictured) to the Renaissance paintings in the Palazzo Andrea Doria in Genoa. You can read an article by Heather on this very topic, by following this link to the University of Glasgow’s international online journal eSharp (the link to the article is at the bottom of that page).
