CLST 384 - The Humanism of Antiquity II

Spring Semester 2016

Aeneas panel, Ara Pacis Augustae, Rome, 13-9 BC

In this capstone course, students pursuing the Department's different majors and the Latin minor (and Post-Baccalaureate candidates, Greek minors, and Classical Civilization minors who choose) study jointly how selected important Roman texts develop ideas about the human person. Participants' individual reading, research, writing, and discussion build their knowledge, hone their judgment, and advance the shared inquiry, enriching us all. What did Roman civilization contribute to humanity's conversation about individuals' relationships with one another, with their community, with the state, with other peoples, with the natural world, and with the transcendent? How did the forces of Roman history shape Roman society, culture, and values? And how can we today improve our understanding of this part of our past?

Our work together will pursue five chief aims (plus a sixth of having fun with them):
