Ancient Monuments: Landscape, History, and Memory (FYS)
Spring 2021
Section: 01  

In this course, we will examine some of the most renowned sites from Greek and Roman antiquity, such as the Parthenon and the other monuments on and near the Athenian Acropolis, the Colosseum and Forum in Rome, and Pompeii. The aim is to get a broad understanding of their significance, and so the sources will include ancient texts, modern scholarship and travel narrative, and visual representations such as drawings and photographs. We will pay particular attention to the ways in which the ancient sites interact with their surroundings.
