The Golden Age of Rome
CLAS-C361 ,  25785 ,  Franklin

The course is a survey of the city of Rome in the empire, beginning
with the rise of Octavian, later Augustus. The Aeneid of Vergil and
the Twelve Caesars of Suetonius are the class texts, and we will
supplement these heavily with study of the physical remains of
imperial Rome in order to study the propaganda efforts of the
various dynasties.  There will also be additional e-reserve reading
on the individual monuments and topics.  This is an Intensive
Writing course; there are no tests, but rather writing assignments
to complete the writing requirements.
