This summer seminar will provide teachers the opportunity to study Roman daily life through Petronius' novel Satyricon and material culture from the city of Pompeii. Selections from the novel will be read in Latin to provide opportunity for translation. Pompeii will be studied through its archaeology and graffiti. Seminar participants will also have the opportunity to select and focus on a particular group (women, slaves, freedmen, etc.) in relation to the topics of daily life.
