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.

Prerequisites: Graduate standing. (3).

Credits: (3).

This graduate seminar has as its temporal scope the period from the rise of the Mycenaean palaces on the Greek mainland until the end of the Bronze Age (ca. 1600-1100 BC) and, while focusing primarily on Greece and the Aegean, will be concerned more generally with the whole Eastern Mediterranean, including Crete, Cyprus, Anatolia, the Levant and Egypt. We will begin with a detailed examination of the workings of the Mycenaean palace economy, including study of some Linear B documents in transliteration, as well as strictly archaeological material. The seminar will then to move to a more inclusive consideration of trade and exchange involving Aegean states and their counterparts further east; this will involve study of documentary evidence, patterns of artifact distribution, key site-types (such as shipwrecks), and the application of scientific methods for establishing provenance and exchange. We will conclude with an attempt to contextualize such evidence by examining the nature and extent of cultural interaction between Aegean states and those further east during the later Bronze Age.
