HIS 400 Greece and Rome Exposed

The lives of men and women in Classical Greece and Rome were effectively defined by two spheres: public and private. This dichotomy affected most aspects of life, everything from family life and relationships between the sexes, to religious beliefs and practices, to leisure activities, to societal expectations and norms. This course will use a broad array of primary and secondary evidence, including art and literature, to explore life in the ancient world, and to analyze the ways in which the divide between public and private is different from that in our own society.
