CLASSICS 151g: CIVILIZATION OF ROME Fall 2007 TuTh 11 – 12:20 TEACHING STAFF Professor Thomas Habinek Department of Classics, THH 256 Office Hours: Tuesday 1-3 or by appointment Email: habinek @usc.edu Teaching Assistants Devon Harlow dharlow @ usc.edu AIMS OF COURSE The purpose of the course is to introduce students to the civilization of ancient Rome and its continuing impact on later cultures. Students will acquire a knowledge of major historical events and periods from the beginnings of Rome through late antiquity and the emergence of Christianity as a political force. In additions, students will explore key cultural monuments and practices of the Roman world, including literature, oratory, art, spectacle, and the structures of everyday life. We will consider in particular the interaction between cultural practices and historical change: how each one shapes the other within and beyond the Roman world. The course fulfills the General Education requirement for Category I: Cultures and Civilizations (Europe and the Americas). COURSE REQUIREMENTS Regular attendance at lecture and section. Asking questions and hearing others’ questions asked and answered are important parts of the learning process. Students are expected to participate in the learning process and not just receive knowledge. Advance preparation. Readings should be done during or prior to the week indicated on the Course Schedule. Students should feel free to ask questions about the readings during lectures or at discussion section. Midterm Exams. There will be two midterms, as noted on the Course Schedule. These exams will review key concepts from the lectures and the readings. They will consist of a mix of short answers or IDs and essays.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
