SICKNESS AND WELLNESS IN LATIN LITERATURE
JUNE 29 - JULY 11, 2020 (Mon. - Fri.)
Living Latin Online is an intensive online Latin experience designed to bring the dynamic experience of Paideia’s Living Latin study-programs to an online environment. The program includes daily intensive reading and discussion of Latin texts from across the history of Latin literature. According to participants’ ability, the language of instruction is Latin. In addition to the daily seminar sessions, the program online sessions designed to build students’ facility in speaking and understanding Latin, as well as lectures and “virtual site visits” to sites that evoke the courses theme.
Due to the COVID-19 Crisis, Living Latin Online will focus on exploring texts relating to sickness and wellness throughout the history of Latinity. Readings will include selections from Lucretius, Virgil, Ovid, Seneca, Heloise, Petrarch, Fracastoro and many more.
This program welcomes students of all levels of Latin, from beginners through highly experienced Latin speakers. The program’s lower levels welcome beginning Latin students and include both reading of the texts in Latin and in English translation as well as a review of Latin grammar. The upper levels aim to read and discuss texts entirely in Latin. Paideia alumni and Nexus Members are particularly encouraged to apply.
