An exploration of the art, architecture, monuments, and space of the ancient world by analyzing and assessing the innovative scholarly resources that are currently available to students and scholars of the classical world. Each week a new discipline within Classics (e.g., philology, epigraphy, numismatics) is presented, followed by an introduction to several scholarly tools and resources that can be used to query or conduct research in that field. Each of the five groups within the class examines a particular time period and applies a series of scholarly tools to evaluate how Roman society, politics, and the expression of power shifted over the centuries of empire. This course was taught by Professor Rebecca Benefiel in the Classics Department. Course website
The Reformation of the sixteenth century dramatically altered society, politics, and culture in England and Scotland. Students used TimelineJS to explore and illustrate the major events, texts, themes, and individuals of the English and Scottish Reformations in their European and British contexts. The timeline also served as a resource for students writing their final essays for the course.
