For each of the three themes that you choose, you are to discuss how Greco-Roman culture has influenced them in the time period you chose. The overarching theme of this paper is how Greco-Roman culture is the foundation for western civilization and how we can see their influence in nearly every sphere of life throughout time.

Let’s say you choose to do 18-19th century USA and you choose architecture, philosophy and government. These are very broad subjects, and while you can refer to both Greece and Rome, you might want to choose just one of Greece or Rome. For this example, I’ve chosen to only include Roman influence.(You will not be comparing architecture, philosophy and government. You will be discussing how each are inspired by Rome.)
<
<
Architecture: First, identify the important architectural elements of Roman architecture and include examples of at least one specific Roman building that has those elements. Next, include specific American monuments that are directly influenced by Roman architecture that you have just identified as an example of Roman architecture. Finally, discuss why that particular American monument is using Roman architectural elements.
<
<
Philosophy: First identify a school of philosophy popular in Rome. Next, discuss how it’s influenced a modern school of philosophy. For example, you might discuss the ancient form of stoicism and compare it/discuss the development of that philosophical school in the 19th century.
<
<
Government: First, identify the basic structure of the Roman Republic. Next, discuss specific elements of the American constitution that are influenced by the Roman Republic. Finally, discuss why America was influenced by ancient Rome.
<

Include a conclusion and a reference page. You must use a minimum of two sources other than your textbook, and you may not use Wikipedia. (Using Wikipedia is fine as a tool, but if you look at Wikipedia you will see references at the bottom; those are generally the sources you can use.) Books or scholarly articles are the best sources to use, but If you are uncertain about the accuracy of a web page, please email me.

How you approach this assignment is very open, but you must include specific examples from Ancient Greece or Rome, the time period you choose, and why it’s influenced by Greece and/or Rome. You should not just give a list of influences from antiquity without some attempt to understand why they are so inspirational.
<
<
For instance, you could look at Greek mythology’s influence on contemporary literature, movies, music and possibly even video games. If music, you could look at how much and what type of music is inspired by mythology or includes mythological references. Or you could dissect a song that includes mythological references and what it means to the overall song and the message the artist is trying to get across. If you do something like this, make sure to discuss why they are using Greek mythology. What makes it popular? Does the story or song have a timeless message?
<
<
If you were looking at mythological influences in movies, do not just give an imdb-type synopsis of the movie. What makes that particular myth interesting? Why is it popular? Is it a myth that is made into several movies throughout time or just once?
<
<
This paper can’t be completed properly if you do not include discussions of how your particular topics are influenced by Greece and Rome specifically. (For example, writing about American Jazz music and saying Greeks listened to music and here’s a 20th century music style is incorrect and will lose a lot of points. You must focus on the Greco-Roman influence in whatever topics you choose.) If you choose a topic and can’t find anything to talk about, choose another one.
