of Glory: Architecture of Power in Ancient Greece and Rome
A great way to satisfy your HNRS 240 requirement is through investigating the political stakes of mourning,
memorials, and memory in Greece and Rome. Start in Greece with the Acropolis, Hadrian’s Arch, the Parthenon, end with two weeks of the momunments of classic Rome. Contemporary topics, like the fight over the ‘sacred ground’ of the 9/11 memorial, will be
incorporated to provide a view over time of the different ways that republics and empires have attempted to memorialize and mourn public death. and how these monuments demonstrate the political stakes and the importance of public responses to death and mourning.
You will be encourage to think about the connections between politics, culture, and mourning, in a manner that makes use of multi-disciplinary materials from economics, humanities, literature, and film.
