CLSX 365.  Ancient Rome, Monuments, and Memory.  3 Credits.   H   

This course explores the monuments and historical topography of the city of Rome, Italy across the Ancient, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque, and Modern periods. Focusing on a series of case studies, monuments, and urban spaces such as the Pantheon, the Colosseum, and the imperial forums, this course explores how public spaces change in their usage and meaning over time. The course emphasizes Rome’s illustrious architects and artists, such as Michelangelo and Bernini, who attempted to modernize the “eternal city” by drawing on its ancient origins with such endeavors as New St. Peter’s Basilica. Throughout the course, students are challenged to compare the city of Rome to modern urban environments, and even to Lawrence, Kansas. All readings are in English; no prerequisites required.
