CLAS-C 491  Topics in Classical Studies:
The Roman Family
Section 25147 / Bannon

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. We consider changes in the family over time, public and
private perspectives on kinship, and changes in Roman society that
affected the family. (S&H, CSA)
