Ancient Rome: From Hut Village to Imperial Capitol

CCIV 150
Spring 2011
Section: 01  
Course Cluster: Urban Studies

This course will survey the development of the ancient city of Rome from its mythical foundation and its legendary heroes through the historical figures of the Republic and Empire who contributed to the physical growth of the city and the establishment of its religious, political, and civic institutions. Our study will be based on readings in primary literary sources and inscriptions, close examination of Rome's principal monuments, and analysis of modern archaeological and sociological studies.

Essential Capabilities: Intercultural Literacy, Interpretation
This course emphasizes interpretation both through text and through the reading of maps, plans and images. The course also emphasizes intercultural literacy since it will be dealing with a culture with which most students are familiar but only superficially, and we will be examining the development of many of its religious, political and cultural institutions.
