Suggested
Topics
1.
Writing
Imperium:
Both
Livy
and
Virgil
treat
the
origins
of
Rome
in
ways
that
reflect
upon
social
and
political
issues
contemporary
to
the
rise
of
Augustus
and
the
transition
from
Republic
to
monarchy.
Discuss
in
detail
how
one
or
both
of
these
authors
treats
Romefs
mythic
past
in
terms
of
present
concerns.
How
does
Livy
AND/OR
Virgil
use
literature
to
engage
with
problems
that
have
relevance
in
their
own
times?
If
you
choose
to
work
on
both
authors,
you
may
compare
and
contrast
their
approaches.
2.
Cicero,
Man
of
Letters:
Cicerofs
speech
gIn
Defense
of
Caeliush
is
both
an
example
of
judicial
oratory
and
a
sophisticated
piece
of
literature
that
interacts
with
other
genres.
In
your
paper,
discuss
the
connections
between
Cicerofs
oration
and
Roman
comedy
(via
the
example
of
Plautusf
Pseudolus)
OR
Catullusf
poems
about
Lesbia.
How
does
reading
Cicero
alongside
these
other
texts
illuminate
features
of
his
speech
such
as
rhetorical
strategies,
views
on
adolescence,
or
construction
of
gender?
3.
Trimalchio
and
His
Afterlife:
Petroniusf
Trimalchio
is
one
of
the
models
on
which
Fitzgerald
based
his
characterization
of
Gatsby.
What
are
the
primary
points
of
similarity
and
difference,
and
how
does
interpreting
Trimalchio
through
the
lens
of
Gatsby
(or
vice
versa)
enhance
your
understanding
of
these
literary
figures
.
which
are
both
representative
of
a
nouveau
riche
but
in
very
distinctive
historical
settings.
4.
Gender
and
Power:
Many
of
our
readings
this
term
have
shown
that
Rome
was
a
society
highly
invested
in
social
hierarchy
and
distinctions
of
gender.
This
topic
gives
you
an
opportunity
to
explore
the
relationship
between
another
culturefs
gender
norms
and
its
conceptions
of
power
and
honor.
Choose
TWO
or
more
characters
from
works
we
have
read
and
analyze
the
ways
in
which
they
reflect
upon
Roman
constructions
of
gender
vis–]a–]vis
social/political
power.
You
may
investigate
the
construction
of
masculinity,
femininity,
or
both
together
as
sides
of
the
same
coin.
For
example:
Dido
and
Aeneas;
Lucretia
and
Dido;
Camillus
and
Aeneas;
Pseudolus
and
Trimalchio.

you
would
like

write
on
a
topic
other
than
those
suggested,

so
in
consultation
with
me.
Please

appointment
to
speak
with
me
at
