In the second century BCE, the Roman Republic demonstrated to the mediterranean world the power of a government by and for the people. But can it survive the trappings of success? This is the story of the Republic's collapse.

Class experience

Students will learn about the events that led to the collapse of the Roman Republic, and the social dynamics that made it inevitable. We’ll start by dissecting the state of Rome as its success on the global stage altered the domestic landscape, allowing for the rise of a few powerful leaders. The middle of the class will trace the concatenation of conflicts that culminated in civl war: Caesar and the people vs Pompey and the senate. Finally, we’ll look at the senate’s response to Caesar’s new order.
