Schedule of Meeting Places and Assignments

Monday - Wednesday, 9:00am-12:20pm
~ on-site in Rome ~

The reading assignments take you through the development of art in the Roman world in a rational order devised by a leading scholar of the field;
on-site and museum visits show you the art, but in an order constrained by space and institutional scheduling.
Keep up with the reading as assigned, so you will develop the understanding this course encompasses.
But also keep on referring forward and back to important discussions of items and concepts as we physically get around to them.
