[GLAM 240] Public and Private Communication

This course focuses on the epistolary and oratorical genres: how did Roman writers communicate to their family and friends, and how did they make arguments in public? We focus on the works of Cicero, and other authors may include Ovid, Pliny the Younger, Seneca the Elder, Seneca the Younger, Quintilian, and Marcus Aurelius, depending on the interest and expertise of the students and instructor. Attention is paid to argumentation, salutations, and the relationship between writing and action.
