The seminar focuses primarily on the cultural implications of the Roman conquest, spanning archaeology, history and textual analysis. Formerly described with value-laden terms such as Romanization or acculturation, the changes that happen in the aftermath of the incorporation within the Roman empire represent in any case a crucial transition in the cultural trajectory of most affected regions. The seminar first reviews the past and current relevant theoretical debate and then proceeds to examine systematically various cultural areas, looking at how they were impacted after the conquest. These areas include land tenure and settlement patterns, political organization, law, language, religion, art, architecture, onomastic and much else. Reports on these topics build towards a research-based term paper.
