Program Description:
"Exploring Rome" (TX 200) is a one-credit travel seminar that will introduce students to interdisciplinary perspectives on Rome. Taught by Faculty Directors Dan Curley, Associate Professor of Classics and Gregory Spinner, Teaching Professor of Religion.

Rome is the Eternal City, an urban center three millennia in the making. As a religious, political, and cultural world capital, Rome has become one of the most imaged and imagined cities on earth, depicted in literature and art by citizens, expatriates, exiles, and visitors alike. Exploring Rome offers an immersive residential experience, where representations of the city meet the realities of urban space and urban planning. Students will tour and present on ancient sites (the Forum, the Colosseum, the Pantheon), as well as the Vatican, major museums, churches, synagogues, palazzi, Fascist monuments, and other locales in which it is possible to discern the spatial and social layering that is Rome's hallmark.  In addition, students will keep travel journals and produce a portfolio that captures their experiences on the tour, thereby continuing the ages-old tradition of writing about Rome.
