The study of empires has traditionally focused on the society and culture of the conqueror, and the diverse means by which it maintained and manifested its power. More recently, however, attention has been given to the lives of the conquered and the degree to which these imperial subjects accommodated — or resisted — their rulers. In line with this development, this course revolves around a pair of related questions: how were the inhabitants of territories incorporated within the Roman empire affected by becoming part of a larger imperial world? And did provincial residents in turn have any impact upon the central power of Rome? This course will examine a sample of provinces drawn from various geographic and climatic zones as well as from societies with a range of pre-existing political formations. For each of these regions similar themes will be explored, allowing us, at the end of the course, to evaluate the nature of the Roman empire and the degree to which it was a unified entity.

Course Requirements:

The course is divided into 3 units, with an exam after the first two units, and a paper after the third.

Intended Audience:

The course is ideally suited for undergraduate students with some background in classical art/archaeology (e.g., CLARCH 221 or 222)

Class Format:

Meets twice a week
