America, from its very origins as an independent nation, saw itself as the new Rome: our system of government is built on Roman precedents, our national buildings look as if they came from the Roman Forum, and our leisure activities take us to stadiums modeled on the Colosseum. Our relationship to Rome, however, raises our greatest anxiety: will America fall as Rome did? In 1776, the year of American independence, Edward Gibbon published his History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire ; America has been thinking about the trajectory of our history alongside Rome's from the very beginning.

In Classics and Queer History, we will explore ancient and modern paradigms of sex, gender, and sexuality and discuss queer uses of and struggles with the past and the idea of the Classical. To do this, we will examine diverse works of ancient Greek and Roman literature and visual art, as well as works from later periods sonnets, operas, novels, films, scholarship, and more that adapt ancient stories and ideas for their own, queer purposes. As we move across time, geography, and cultures, we will keep in mind the over-arching questions, what is queer history, and why might one pursue it?
