CLSC 326/426: Rome on Site: The Archaeology of the Eternal City

How did the city of Rome grow from a village of thatch-roofed huts to the center of a multicultural empire that stretched from Scotland to Syria and from the Danube to the Sahara? Who were the ancient Romans who saw and oversaw this rapid expansion of power? And how can we trace their rise, political transformations, and later successors through the material remains of their capital city? We’ll examine these topics and more during an 18-day study tour of the major archaeological sites and museums of Rome and its neighbors, including day trips to the Etruscan tombs at Tarquinia and Cerveteri, the archaeological playground of Ostia, the hill-top city of Palestrina, and the ongoing excavations at Gabii, as well as an extended trip to the Bay of Naples to explore the spectacular remains of the cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum.

Prereq.: Instructor Approval. Fulfills Global and Cultural Diversity Requirement.

ETHS 306: The Cuban Experience

This is a three week study-abroad intensive course that takes place at Editorial Vigía, in Matanzas, Cuba. The course combines the unique advantages of a total immersion environment in Spanish with a classroom curriculum that includes conversation practice and study of relevant cultural, literary and historical issues. Students complete three hours of classroom instruction and an hour and a half of publishing workshop four days per week. In this workshop, they work in the edition of a bilingual book. In addition, they participate in organized visits to historic sites and museums connected to the culture curriculum. The focus of the culture curriculum is the study of Cuban history and culture through its literature, visual arts, films, and music. After applying and being accepted in the program, students meet for personal advising with the program director and attend four different one hour orientation-information meetings in the spring semester. After successful completion of the study-abroad program, students receive 3 upper-level credits in Spanish. The course is interdisciplinary in approach and provides students with the tools they need to analyze and understand the complexities of modern Cuba. Students will have formal classes taught by their professor and talks and meetings with specialists on Cuban literature, art, architecture, history and other aspects of culture and society. In addition, they will attend lectures, participate in discussions, and take field trips that will expose them to many aspects of Cuban culture, such as art, architecture, music, dance, film, literature, artisan work, folklore, history and urban growth.
