Unadvertised / special / experimental coursework opportunity.
Date: August 15, 2011
We would organize the group as a one credit CLA 499 Independent Study course that would meet at a mutually agreeable time on Friday mornings. Discussion will focus especially upon the description of these events in Tacitus' Histories and efforts in modern scholarship to understand and reconstruct the period.
The discussion group would naturally complement LAT 350 and GRK 380, which will be reading parallel accounts in Suetonius and Plutarch respectively. However, one does not need to be enrolled in those courses in order to participate in the discussion group. All assigned materials for the latter will be in English.
Interested persons should write to Prof. Anderson with your name and contact information, any prior coursework you've done in Classics or ancient civilization, and an indication of your availability on Friday mornings. Participants will need to complete a CLA 499 Independent Study contract and obtain a permit in order to enroll.
