LATIN 402. Imperial Prose.

Intermediate Courses

Section 001 Tacitus and Biography.

Instructor(s): Netta Berlin (berlin@umich.edu)

Prerequisites: LATIN 301 or 302. (3). May be repeated for credit for a maximum of 9 credits.

Credits: (3; 2 in the half-term).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

This course centers on Tacitus and his place in the tradition of ancient biography. Our primary text is the Agricola, in which several literary genres (panegyric, funeral laudation, historical narrative, and ethnography) inform the author's portrait of his father-in-law, a loyal imperial official and skilled military leader during the reign of Domitian. From Agricola we turn to a selection of biographical portraits from the Annals, through which we explore how the author uses the lives of individuals to comment on imperial administration and military leadership during the early principate. In addition to translation, emphasis in the course is given to Tacitus' style, particularly as it elucidates the subject matter and as it undergoes refinement from the author's first to last works.

This class will concentrate on the four books of Vergil's Georgics. In addition to examining such formal features of the poem as metrics, structure, and diction, we shall also consider two particular areas external to the work itself: the Greek and Latin tradition of didactic poetry within which the poem is normally categorized, and the historical and political context within which Vergil writes. Special attention will be given to the ways in which the didactic and the political interact throughout the poem. What does this didactic poem in fact teach?

This second term of the introductory sequence will continue the reading of prose and will then include selections from Vergil's Aeneid. Students need to have taken Latin 502 or equivalent to enroll in Latin 503. Throughout the course, there will be a systematic review of Latin grammar to ensure a command of language necessary for increasing ease in reading. Therefore, anyone with knowledge of elementary Latin could profit from the course.

LATIN 642 / LAW 877. Introduction to Roman Law.

Section 001 Meets with CLCIV 478.001.

Instructor(s): Bruce W Frier (bwfrier@umich.edu)

Prerequisites: Graduate standing only. (3). May not be repeated for credit.

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

This course acquaints students with the fundamental concepts of Roman private law, with their origin in the society and government of the High Roman Empire, and with their all-important influence in the development of Western European legal theory and institutions. We will use a direct application of the American case-law method to the teaching of Roman law. Our basic text will be a series of actual problems from the Roman jurists, which we will discuss in class; only as the occasion demands will the instructor "fill in the gaps" with short lectures on other relevant legal material. Thus, students should develop a feel for legal analysis and for the contribution made through such analysis by the Roman jurists; at the same time, students will learn Roman law in a form that will be directly relevant to future legal studies. Besides the handouts, one general introduction to Roman law (ca. 250 pages) will be required reading. There will be one hour test on material covered in class, in addition to the final examination; one paper (10 pages) will allow the student to analyze in detail a particular legal problem.

Prerequisites: Graduate standing. (3). May not be repeated for credit.

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

This course will examine the function and significance of bodily movement in Roman culture through a close study of both poetic and prose Latin texts. Special attention will be paid to the ways in which Romans share particular forms of gesture and physical movement with other cultures (especially ancient Greece) but have adapted them within their new, Roman context. Topics will include: the attitudes of the body in prayer; mourning ritual; gestures of orators and actors; gender specific movement; the use of the body in healing; how references to the body can be used to explicate poetic texts. In addition to readings in Latin (including but not restricted to Plautus, Cicero, Vergil, Propertius, Quintilian, the Elder Pliny, Marcellus Empiricus), we shall also be discussing selected works in anthropology and social theory (including Abram, Bateson, Bourdieu, Foucault, Mauss).
