Clauss with students in Rome
James J. Clauss

Syllabus Description:

The syllabus is not ready yet. Stay tuned for that. In the meantime we will be reading selections in Latin from Livy Book 1 and Vergil's Aeneid Book 8. Both deal with the early history and site of Rome.  The rest of each book will be read in English. 

Remote classes will consist of student translations and discussions. The goal is not only to read these texts in Latin but to learn more about Roman literature, history and culture as well as to improve student familiarity and facility with Latin.

The texts include Livy Book 1 by Good and Whitely and Vergil Aeneid 8 by O'Hara and Ganiban.

Grades will be based on participation in class (20%), Midterm (30%), Final (30%), and Final paper (20%). Students interested in taking this class for W designation should let me know at the beginning of the quarter.
