<div>This module combines a beginners' course in Latin with the study of Roman culture and literature in translation. You'll learn the core principles of the language, reading texts adapted from Livy, and supported by specially designed online resources. Alongside the language, you'll explore a range of Latin texts in translation (including Livy, Virgil, Ovid, and Horace) from literary, cultural, and historical angles. The module focuses on the theme of 'Roman identity and exemplarity', considering Augustan culture's preoccupation with identity, Rome's origins, and exemplary stories from the past. You will also have the opportunity to reflect upon how translation affects our interpretation of ancient literature and culture.</div>
