GRST 314 - Seminar in Ancient Art

Semester Offered: Spring
1 unit(s)
(Same as ART 314  and URBS 314 ) Topic for 2017/18b: Pompeii: Public and Private Life. The volcanic eruption of Vesuvius in A.D. 79 blotted out life in Pompeii, but the Roman town lives on as a study site and tourist attraction. Its urban development with grand theaters and amphitheaters alongside of taverns and brothels exemplifies high and low Roman culture. The homes of private citizens demonstrate intense social competition in their scale, grounds, and the Greek myths painted on walls. Pompeii gave shape to the world of Roman citizens and others through its raucous street life and gleaming monumental centers. Eve D’Ambra.

Prerequisite(s): permission of the instructor.

One 2-hour period.
