This course is a survey of some of the most important and engaging work being done by American women in the literary genre that Lorde calls a “vital necessity of our existence.” The selected texts – by Victoria Chang, Franny Choi, Natalie Diaz, Donika Kelly, Patricia Lockwood, and Claudia Rankine – touch on such broad-ranging themes as grief, technology, genocidal violence, mythology, rape culture, and police brutality. They show how poets use form, scheme, language, voice, and sound to create works of art that not only thrill, but also awaken and enlighten us. More

This paper investigates waste management at the Roman Pompeii, tracing the path of refuse it moved across the city and its suburbs. I argue that garbage was an unavoidable part of life in Pompeii, not because the city lacked systems for dealing with waste, but because those systems prioritized recycling and reuse over removal. Studying waste, therefore, reflects not only on Pompeii’s sanitation, but also illuminates essential patterns of its economic and social life. More

In the final years of the suffrage struggle, Ohio women’s efforts to gain the vote took place within a national movement that accepted the regional disenfranchisement of African Americans as part of a bargain to overcome Southern resistance. Yet in Ohio, the opposition from organized liquor interests brought black and white suffragists together. The story of these complex relationships helps us think about how race, region, and special interests shape alliances and access to the vote. More

Trajan's Column is best known for its sculpted spiral frieze depicting Trajan's victories in the Dacian Wars (101-106 AD), but it was also a great technological achievement requiring a great deal of site organization. The blocks making up the Column of Trajan are among the heaviest to have been lifted during the Roman Imperial period (the largest of which weighed as much as 77 tons). In this talk I look at the possible ways this could have been accomplished, some of the logistical problems of accomplishing such a feat, and how it fits into the Roman desire to demonstrate power through large scale construction projects. I will also touch on some of the problems involved in creating hypothetical reconstructions of ancient processes. More

Flannery O’Connor explained the violent epiphanies in her stories by saying that, “To the hard of hearing you shout, and for the almost blind you draw large and startling figures.” In this course, we will look at the “large and startling figures” in the stories from both her 1955 A Good Man is Hard to Find as well as her 1964 Everything that Rise Must Converge (published posthumously), examining the violent epiphanies and disturbing visions she created in what she described as the “Christ-haunted south.” Readings: Flannery O’Connor, A Good Man is Hard to Find; Everything that Rise Must Converge More

The modern-day landscape of Sudan, ancient Nubia, is dotted with temples and pyramids – remnants of great kingdoms that flourished in the 1st millennium BC. One of these, the Kingdom of Kush, rose to particular prominence as some of its kings ruled over Ancient Egypt as pharaohs of the 25th Dynasty. Largely neglected in the history books, this talk will delve into the stories of early explorers to Nubia and highlight how ongoing fieldwork at Nuri is changing our perception of this part of the ancient world.

Excavations have been underway at the ancient Greek and Roman city of Morgantina for over sixty years. Throughout that time, a near-uncountable amount of data has been acquired describing the architecture, artifacts, and people. We are now faced with the challenge of how to present all this information from a remote, inaccessible, and inhospitable location to a wide audience. The VR Morgantina experience housed at CWRU’s Kelvin Smith Library unites numerous aspects of the excavations to recreate the ancient city as it would have been roughly 2400 years ago. Within the VR environment it is possible to embed small educational lessons on ancient Greek and Roman history, art, and culture, inviting new audiences all over the world to experience the city first hand. Normandy residents pay member cost through the Normandy. Fees include lunch. More
