Journey into Roman antiquity with Brandeis scholar Michael Booth, and encounter a Rome more familiar--and more provocative --than you possibly could have imagined. Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar and Antony and Cleopatra are mainly focused on penetrating questions of character and human relationships. His last Roman play, Coriolanus, poses questions of justice and the virtues of democracy uncanny for today’s American reader. Find out what the greatest writer in English had to say about justice.

Each course will seek to illuminate the ancient ethical and legal question: What is justice?

Each JustBrandeis seminar is five sessions and has a dedicated websites offering course materials, bonus lectures, videos and readings, and an online platform through which course participants can communicate with each other.
