The details


Kathleen M. Coleman is an academic and writer, and the James Loeb Professor of the Classics at Harvard College. She was born in Zimbabwe, and taught at the University of Cape Town and Trinity College in Dublin before being appointed the Professor of Latin at Harvard in 2003. Due to her extensive knowledge of gladiatorial combat and its history, she acted as Chief Academic Consultant on the script of Ridley Scott's Gladiator. Professor Coleman purportedly found her work as a historical consultant to have had such little effect that she asked to be listed in the credits without any mention of her function. She has since contributed an essay "The Pedant Goes to Hollywood: The Role of the Academic Consultant" to Martin M. Winkler's collection of essays on the topic.
