ARAS 229 - The Roman World in 12 Objects


CR: 3
Who are the Romans? What constitutes romanitas? This interdisciplinary course tackles such questions by examining multiple lines of evidence that shed light upon our perceptions of Rome and the Romans. Covering the period between 750 BCE, the time of the traditional foundation of the city of Rome, and the second century CE, when Rome’s imperial power was at its zenith, we will explore the ways in which Romans defined their cultural identity, investigating the types of information that are made accessible by the integration of material and visual evidence, which often highlight aspects of human experiences that are not attainable through the exploration of texts alone. Offered alternate years. III.O, V.1, V.2
