The Science of Roman History

Caroline Cheung

Back to "Spring 2020" courses

History courses usually cover the grand narratives based on the more traditional, literary evidence. Usually these courses leave no room for discussing how knowledge is created and the new and different methods for studying ancient history. This course instead looks at different questions to shed light on fruitful collaborations between scholars from different fields. Students will engage with STEM as they consider humanistic questions. Through different case studies and hands-on activities, students will learn about different scientific, technological, and mathematical methods and how knowledge of the past draws on multiple disciplines.
