This subject examines how the Romans wrote about their history. Roman historiography tells the story of Roman expansion, and the great deeds (both heroic and villainous) of the famous Romans of the past. It can define and glorify Rome, but it can also challenge and critique Roman behaviours and the course of Roman history. Students will study a book by a major Roman historian, such as Livy or Tacitus, and examine the key elements of Latin historiographical style, how the text constructs Roman history, the role of the historian as moralist, and Roman history writing"s function as a medium for the circulation of sociopolitical ideology and debate. Students who successfully complete this subject should be able to read Roman historiography, identify its stylistic features, and analyse its central themes and role within Roman culture.
|Assessment:||A 1200 word seminar paper (30%, due during the semester). an assessment text equivalent to 1000 words (25%, due at the end of semester). and a 1800 word essay (45%, due in the examination period).
