The Upside of Decline and Fall

Recently minted PhD graduate Dr Jonathan Theodore has a double cause for celebration: He has just signed a contract for the publication of a book based on his doctoral thesis.

His book will investigate representations of the “decline and fall” of Rome from the late nineteenth through the early twenty-first centuries. Jonathan is showing how writers, filmmakers and the media have conceptualized this decline and the parallels they have drawn, deliberately or unconsciously, to their contemporary worlds.

Publication is due in June 2016 with Palgrave Macmillan. His research supervisor was CMCI’s Reader in Culture, Media and Creative Industries, Dr Richard Howells.
