Winter Quarter 2016

  • Representation and Self-Representation in 4th Century Media
Edward Watts, UCSD
This class looks at the tension between text and context in the fourth century.  Drawing upon contemporary work on fourth century numismatics and manuscript production and dissemination, the class will encourage students to think critically about the tangible reality of the physical objects that contained texts and the way we must engage them as physical objects to properly study the texts they contain.  The class will treat the following themes: numismatics and propaganda; letters and letter collections within manuscripts; fourth century textual editing and the manuscript as an object.
