The Egyptian queen has generated varied treatments in art and film: she is the Cleopatra of myth and fantasy as well as history, a myth which began during her lifetime. Is Cleopatra an immoral ruination or great leader? Coquettish temptress? A threat, a disgrace or an inspiration? This talk examines the historical Cleopatra and looks at some of the treatments in art, and mainly film. Although her image has been reworked by countless generations, the real Cleopatra remains elusive behind all the masks which have been put on her.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
