Lisa Mignone (Brown): Social Differentiation and the Cityscape of Rome

December 4, 2013 - 5:00pm
Building 110, Room 112

Free & open to public

Join us at 5:00pm for light refreshments

Republican Rome was the first city to house, feed, and sustain a population of one million people (high count), and it did so without a municipal police force. The talk explores the extent to which we may reconstruct socially defined settlement patterns within the city of Rome during the Republic (C6-C1 BCE).

Lisa Mignone is an assistant professor of Classics at Brown University.  Her work focuses on Roman Republican history, especially the ongoing and interactive relationship of historical events and the sites in which they occur.  Her monograph (in progress) reconstructs the social and urban history of Rome's Aventine Hill.
