CLAS C494 The Roman Family
Bannon, Fall 2005

What was family life like in ancient Rome?  Who could get married?
How were children cared for? Where did Grandma live?   How did slaves
fit in?   In this class, we study literature, art, and law, to
investigate these questions and many others about Roman kinship, in
theory and in practice, with comparisons to modern ideas about the
family.  After an introduction to sources and methods, students will
design and complete a research project on a topic of their choosing
related to the Roman family.
