When Virgil began writing his epic poem the Aeneid, Augustus was establishing his imperial rule. While Virgil's contemporaries, and generations to come, greeted the Aeneid as a celebration of Augustan Rome, modern readers tend to view it as a powerful denunciation of war and imperialism. This module explores the ways in which the text engages with both political ideologies and the literary tradition. I am certainly looking forward to examining the historical era, but as I said before a heavy examination of any text isn't really my cup of tea.
And that's about it. Two things you should have noticed from this outline of my 3rd year. First, I have way more work in semester two than semester one, yes I realise this, but it just kind of happened that way because of timetable constraints etc. Second, I am on paper doing more politics than history modules. In actual fact, the workload should be the same. The way it works in 3rd year history at UCD is, those two awesome sounding modules on the Middle Ages and Germany are worth 10 credits each, and require a more intensive learning process than the other subjects (worth 5 credits each) in politics (or in my electives) as a result.
So that's me then, if you have any questions, or have been genuinely intrigued by these revelations I'd love to hear from you, so please contact me via the Facebook page or via email, firstname.lastname@example.org
Until then, thankssssss, and I hope to be working on part three of the 30 Years War Special very soon!
