Authoritative Reference Sources vs Wikipedia
Wikipedia is a great resource for getting general info about something, but because anyone can contribute or change its content it is considered unreliable. College faculty typically do not consider Wikipedia a credible information source.
Instead, use the library's print or electronic encyclopedias, dictionaries, or other reference books to backup the basic information of your research paper. These resources have gone through an editorial process to check for accuracy. To the right and below are some resources that may be of use.

Mussolini's Film of Ancient Rome
Ancient Greek and Roman history and culture have long provided powerful ideas and images that have been used in later periods for both good and ill. This course provides an introduction and orientation to some of the key themes and texts from Greek and Roman antiquity as well as to some of the ways in which "the classics" have been used and misused in later eras, and why they continue to be both so relevant and so fraught. Topics to be discussed include politics and government; war and conquest; slavery, race, and gender; and the role of art, architecture, and public monuments. We will explore the enduring power of these classical legacies and why they have been so frequently appropriated to sponsor nationalist, fascist, and alt-right agendas. Can the Greeks and Romans be redeemed? Should they be? How can we come to terms with these ancient legacies that we still live with today?
