HS 328 - Soldiers, Land, and Population Transferrals

(3.00 cr.)

Prerequisite: One HS 100-level course. Focuses on three topics regarding the Roman army: (a) the army as a social institution; (b) the problem of land ownership and distribution; and (c) the use of population transferrals as an instrument for social engineering. Students explore these topics in order to gain new insight into the accomplishments and failures of individuals as diverse as Pompeius Magnus, Augustus, and Theodosius I. Since history is never without relevance to the present, this seminar also provides students with new ideas and instruments for dealing with contemporary debates about such disputed issues as family farms and immigration. May be offered in Rome. Same course as CL 328 .
