Historical Roman Relief Sculpture. This course will examine Roman historical relief sculpture. We will look at the development of this type of representation from Republican precedents and its use on imperial monuments until late antiquity. Some of the topics that will be examined are the use of narrative, iconography and symbol, the response of the viewer, and the reception of these monuments. The purpose and context of these works within the imperial policy of each emperor will also be considered. While the course will concentrate on monuments in the city of Rome, we will also discuss some examples from outside the capital.

Cross-listed with CLST 519B (graduate seminar). Students interested in taking this course at the undergraduate level should contact the instructor at charmaine.gorrie@ubc.ca
