Art and Society in Ancient Pompeii

Section: 01  
Crosslisting: ARHA 225, ARCP 234
Course Cluster: Urban Studies

This seminar will survey the art, architecture, and material remains of the cities buried by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 CE. Through readings, class discussions, and presentations, we will explore the ways in which this material can be used to study the social and political life of a small Roman city and examine the unique evidence for reconstructing the private life of Roman citizens, from the interior decoration of their homes, to their religious lives, their participation in local politics and government, and their burial customs.
