Class description

This course covers the history of the Roman Republic from 509 BCE to 44 BCE: it is intended to prepare graduate students for their examinations in the field of Roman Republic and for future teaching responsibilities. We will survey the major topics, primary sources, and secondary literature for the Early, Middle, and Late Republic. Although we will cover Early Republic, focusing on the Struggle of the Orders and Rome's wars in Italy, the focus of the course will be the third-first centuries, especially the political and social struggles and cultural changes of 133-44 BCE.
