HIST 566 History and Culture of Rome. This class will survey the history of ancient Rome from its founding, through its transformations from Kingdom into Republic, and Republic into Empire. We will use Roman literature, art, visual media and archeology to discuss Roman history and the development of Roman civilization over a millennium.   In a discussion-based format, our conversations will particularly focus on three areas and their evolution from Roman republic to Empire: Roman daily life; second, the ever-changing role of the Roman military; thirdly, Roman governance.   All readings are in translation. No prior knowledge of classical literature, languages, or ancient history is expected.  Spring 2022 Tuesday/Thursday 2:30pm-3:45  Questions?
