Roman History: Roman Economy

Caroline Cheung

Back to "Spring 2020" courses

This seminar introduces graduate students to methods and debates in the study of the Roman economy (or economies). Students examine the economy of imperial Rome through a combination of archaeological and historical material and approaches. We undertake several case studies covering key themes and issues in the study of the ancient economy:
production; distribution; growth; performance; institutions; the role of technology; and the Mediterranean environment. Students are responsible for weekly readings and presentations and have the option of a research paper.
