ART 353: Art and Life in Pompeii

Term: Spring

Credits: 4

Degree Requirements: F5 Ancient Studies Elective

This course will focus on Pompeii and Herculaneum, also addressing material from sites like Stabiae, Boscoreale, Boscotrecase, and Oplontis. We will examine these cities as case studies of archaeology, Roman urbanism, and a particular period of Roman art. We will also consider the impact of the rediscovery of these lost cities on the 19th century world. Previous completion of Art 151 or Art 219 is strongly recommended but not required. (Course offered every third year.)

Prerequisites: none.
