'Social Networks in Ancient Rome' New Honors Course for Fall 2021
Emma Brobeck, instructor of classical studies, describes her new honors colloquium as follows:
Who were the Romans, and what sorts of lives did they lead? This course will explore the daily social lives of people living in ancient Rome and neighboring areas. We will look at ancient social networks through a variety of lenses, including gender, ethnicity, citizenship and occupation.
We will also look at the structure of relationships in ancient Rome, particularly the institutions of friendship and patronage. Coursework will incorporate a range of materials from the ancient world, from ancient literary texts and monuments to the objects of daily life, with the goal of better understanding the practices and ideologies surrounding identity in Rome.
All materials will be in English; reading knowledge of Latin is not required.
All honors students are eligible to enroll in this course. Students not enrolled in the Honors College may enroll by permission of the instructor, who can also supply more information. Contact Emma Brobeck at email@example.com.
