CLSS 230 Life in the Roman City

An investigation of how ancient Romans experienced life in their great, sprawling city: how was their society organized, how did people of different statuses and backgrounds interrelate, how did the city change, how did public institutions and government shape the public's experience, what were their passions and preoccupations in public and private? An interdisciplinary approach to reconstructing what Romans made of their urban civilization. [H]
