History Abroad

Athens and Rome

Monumental Power: 
Mourning and Memory in Greece and Rome

Starting in Greece with the Acropolis and Parthenon, examine the political stakes of mourning, memorials, and memory. After two weeks in Greece, head for Italy where you will examine the monumental architecture of classical Rome for two weeks. Contemporary topics and memorials like the Lincoln Memorial, Gettysburg, and 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 traumatic public events. How do 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.
