Flourishing roughly contemporaneously between the 3rd century BC and the 3rd century AD, Rome and the Han controlled much of the Eurasian landmass. By focusing on common themes (including kingship, administration, society, and material culture), this course draws upon a range of theoretical and methodological approaches to introduce both empires and a core problem in historical enquiry. Unlike most comparative histories, this course also pays close attention to how ancient participants in empire perceived, portrayed, and theorized their worlds, and the ways these ideas shaped the different imperial projects.

This website provides a place for reflection, group work, and analysis of key topics of the course.

This project developed out of ART330/HLS331: Venice and the Mediterranean in the Spring of 2007. The course explored the artistic and cultural geography of Venice’s Mediterranean empire, known as the stato da mar, from its beginnings in 1204 to the loss of Crete in 1669. During a 9-day trip to Crete, sponsored by the Program in Hellenic Studies, students discovered a unique cultural palimpsest, with layers of physical remains from the Minoan, Roman, Byzantine, Venetian, and Ottoman periods still visible in the cities and the countryside. The class then collaborated on the construction of the website, using photographs made on the trip and providing commentaries for a defined group of monuments.
