Contemporary books and articles often evoke Rome as a comparison for Western society. This seminar investigates our society's desire to hold up Rome as a standard. What does Rome mean for us today, and how do popular references and representations in commentary, film, and television construct the Rome we need? How has this Rome changed from the Founding Fathers to today, and what is the role of historical fact in the process of civic imagination?
