Art and Society in Ancient Pompeii

CCIV 234
Spring 2018 not offered
Crosslisting: ARHA 225, ARCP 234
Course Cluster: Urban Studies

This seminar surveys the art, architecture, and material remains of the cities buried by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 CE. Through readings, class discussions, and student research 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 their participation in local politics and government, to their religious beliefs and lives, to the interior decoration of their homes and their burial customs.
