Description: What's in a name? Apparently a lot. For 500 years--since the Renaissance--scholars have cleaved Roman and Greek art from one another and this division has defined how we think about art in antiquity. In this freshman seminar, we will question this paradigm. Looking at art from around the Mediterranean and reading the very scholarship that has both created these definitions and questioned them, we will work toward a new way of conceiving the art of the Ancient Mediterranean world. This course is limited to first-year students only, any others will be removed from this course. Cross-list: CLAS 179, HART 179. Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for FSEM 179 if student has credit for FSEM 159.
