Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Aims:
- Getting to know selected fields of research on everyday life in Rome and its hinterland
- Understanding of the different everyday experiences of people with different socio-cultural status.
- Understanding of biases in the use of archaeological and written sources
Content: How do you imagine Roman everyday life? What images do you imagine when you read historical sources? This course addresses various aspects of everyday life in the Roman world, from dialogue to everyday rituals, whether domestic, social or political, focusing on human experience and its culturally specific organisation rather than abstract scientific constructs. The course focuses on the period from Republican to early Imperial times, and draws on representations, literary evidence, inscriptions and archaeology, with an emphasis on well-preserved key sites. Buildings, graffiti, traces of occupation deposits and other evidence provide snapshots of everyday life: of houses, workshops, taverns, temples and theatres in the Roman era.
