    Abstract:
    This course introduces students to the study of Mediterranean material culture by focusing on the development of ancient Greek and Roman architecture from the Late Bronze Age to the beginning of Late Antiquity. The survey begins in the Greek world, examining the formal and technical development of Greek architecture. Topics considered will include public, sacred, and private architecture and the development of architectural principles over time. The survey continues in the Roman world, where attention will similarly be paid to formal and technological developments, territorial expansion, and regionalism in architectural forms from the Iron Age to the reign of the emperor Justinian. In both Greek and Roman contexts, attention will be given to visual and contextual analysis, as well as to issues of cultural heritage and reception. Students will gain experience understanding and analyzing ancient buildings and will learn how to study architecture and visual culture within its historical context. There are no prerequisites.
