From “Gladiator” to “HBO’s Rome,” we find ourselves presented with an image of the Romans as violence- and sex-obsessed imperialists, never happier than when embroiled in family intrigue or throwing innocent victims to the lions. How true is this picture? In this course we’ll consider a range of ancient sources, from historians such as Livy and Suetonius to poets such as Catullus, Vergil, and Ovid to the satiric novelist Petronius, together with a broad selection of Roman art and architecture, in an effort to come to grips with who the Romans thought they were and how their self-image changed over time. We’ll focus on the key themes of Rome’s relation to Greece and to its own past, its notions of heroism, religion, sex and gender, law, and politics, and even ask ourselves that fateful question, “Are we Rome?” Grade will be based on exams, papers, and participation in discussion sections.
