This subject examines Roman culture during the ascendancy of Rome's first emperor, Augustus Caesar. This period (27 BCE-14 CE) saw heightened activity in the fields of literature, architecture, religion and art, as the new regime consolidated its power and a new "Augustan" ideology was generated. Students of this course will explore the Augustan regime and its supporting ideology through close examination of the literary and artistic products of the age, as well as the building programs, religious and social reforms, and personal behaviour of Augustus himself. Students completing this subject will be able to recognise and analyse the key features of Augustan culture and the ideology generated around the figure of Augustus during this period.
