Ad Vincere Mundi

Ad Vincere Mundi

By Colette Boulanger
Part of the Proles of the Round Table podcast family. I cover Classical Studies topics from a historical materialist perspective as elucidated by Marxist-Leninist theorists. Consider it a 'people's history' of the cultures of the Mediterranean Basin. I will talk about everyone and everything. 'Western Civilization' is a lie, Rome was a dystopia, everyone was gay, and Jesus wasn't white.

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Histomat: Classical History as Worldly, not White
In the first episode of Ad Vincere Mundi and the first episode in the How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Histomat arc, which deals with the history of Classics as a discipline, Colette breaks down what dialectical and historical materialism are, and then she confronts one of the most egregious and poisonous myths about the field: that of classical history as ‘white history’. I apologize for any sound issues/editing gaffes. Intro: Pines of Rome: Pines of the Villa Borghese, by Ottorino Respighi. Riccardo Muti conducting the Philadelphia Orchestra.
