LT 390 - City as Text: A Literary Guide to Rome

(3.00 cr.)

Students explore the city of Rome as reflected in Latin literary texts, and the cityscape itself as a text that conveys certain messages through its monuments. Drawing from the fields of art, archaeology, and literature, the course takes students on an imaginative tour of some of Rome's famous sites, examining why they were built, what they say, and how ancient authors responded to them and, in doing so, constructed themselves as Romans. Readings focus on the Augustan Age and may include selections from Ovid, Horace, Cicero, and Livy, among others.

Prerequisite: LT 104  or equivalent.
Sessions Typically Offered: Varies
