CLAS 412 - The Ancient City as Text: Rome and Its Reception

A chronological, thematic, and interdisciplinary study of Rome from Forum to Fascism, the readings in CLAS 412/512 include selections from some of the most influential writers and texts of western literature-- travelers, historians, artists, writers, reporters, scientists, critics, art historians, and politicians. Since our goal is to study the ancient iconic city Rome and its reception through the neo-classical period through many lens, we shall also include a range of artists and visuals, including a visit to the Special Collections Library to view manuscripts, facsimiles, and incunabula, a visit to the UAMA collection, and trip to the nearby San Xavier Mission, the "Sistine Chapel of the West."
