    The Roman Empire looms large in the memory of many different cultures. It was one of the most powerful empires in history and outmatched all others in its longevity and its ability to reinvent itself. How and why did this empire, that transformed Europe and the Mediterranean basin, come to be. Students will learn about expansion, militarism, colonialism, and slavery in the ancient world, along with civic and domestic life, religion, and attitudes to gender and sexuality. The discussion section will examine our source material closely and invite students to develop opinions on these issues that resonate with us today.

    History 197 will look at how we define disability, and which bodily and mental phenomena are categorized as disabilities in the ancient Mediterranean from ~500 BCE to ~500 CE. This seminar centers disability as a category of historical analysis.
