Transforming History: Generic Interaction in Roman Historiography

Amherst Room – Tenth Floor of Campus Center
3:30 pm

Roman historians imbued their works with the multi-generic characteristics and styles of tragedy, philosophical dialogues and treatises, and rhetorical speeches. These writers understood the value of borrowing from, alluding to, and interacting with these other genres in order to enhance the story-telling, philosophic, didactic, or rhetorical aspects of their histories.
