The City in Antiquity

Classics 203

Usual Description

Urban centers have been important aspects of human life for more than 5000 years, and the city played a central role in the development of Greek and Roman society. This course will investigate the function of the city in classical antiquity by studying a number of urban centers, including Mycenae, Athens, Alexandria, Pergamon, Rome, Pompeii, Palmyra and Constantinople. Topics will include the urban plan, monumental architecture, domestic space, and social interaction. Studies of architectural and archaeological remains will be complemented by readings of ancient sources in translation.
