Greeks and Romans Abroad: Art and Archaeology of the Greek Colonies and Roman Provinces

Register for this Fall 2023 course on the new NYU SPS Academy of Lifelong Learning website.
Come explore the unique magic of the Greek colonies and Roman provinces. Beginning in the 8th century BCE and lasting through the Roman imperial period, cultural and political expansion brought Greeks and Romans into contact with their neighbors around the Mediterranean. This course explores the art and archaeology of these wonderfully rich territories, where Greco-Roman artistic sensibilities joined with native practices and traditions. Spanning the British Isles to western Asia, we’ll examine key cities and settlements alongside masterpieces of architecture, portraiture, ceramics, and more. Consideration will also be given to the history of archaeological discoveries in these regions, as well as current developments in the preservation of important sites and monuments. Students can expect to walk away with an enhanced, diverse knowledge of Greek and Roman art. Fall 2023 tuition is $429.
Registering at least three weeks prior to the course start date is highly recommended.
