The Ancient Greeks are always with us, in high places and low, from the halls of our democratic institutions to the pages of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition. How can we explain their ubiquitous presence in our lives? Why won't they go away? This course explores the art and archaeology of ancient Greece, beginning in the Bronze Age (the famous Minoan and Mycenaean civilizations) through to Hellenistic times (the age of Alexander the Great). We will explore all aspects of Greek life as reflected in the materials they left behind, objects that range from mighty marble temples such as the Parthenon, to discarded drinking vessels from their parties, from cities to theaters, from houses to palaces. Such artistic and archaeological evidence allows us to consider how Greek society worked, and how they understood the relations of humans and gods, men and women, Greeks and barbarians. Having taken this course, you will understand far better just why the Greeks are so hard to forget.

The ruins that now stand as silent testimony to ancient Rome formerly held impressive displays of sculpture, paintings and mosaics. The rituals, ceremonies and festivals of public life were performed within and around these once monumental decorated settings. This course will examine the functional, aesthetic and didactic relationships between art and architecture in the city of Rome from the reign of the first emperor Augustus (27-14) to the age of the Severans in the early third century C.E. Complexes to be covered include the Augustan Palatine, the Campus Martius, the Flavian Palace, the Imperial fora, the Pantheon and the Baths of Caracalla. Particular emphasis will be given to the public displays of Roman historical reliefs within the urban landscape. The focus on architectural atmospheres and visual narratives frequently will be supplemented by reading the ancient texts (in translation) which describe the various activities that occurred in the urban environments of the capital city. Also covered will be the design and décor of late Republican precedents as well as the influence of the public spaces of Imperial Rome upon the city in the late Roman Empire.
