I believe that scholars should engage in the project that is the internet. With that in mind, I’ll be tweeting (@opietasanimi) about the CL 102 course and related topics with the hashtag #worldofrome, as will your Teaching Fellows. I encourage you to follow along, and to contribute to the hashtag! You can tweet about your thoughts on art objects, poems, myths, historical moments, and all that we study, as well as things that occur to you as you read the assigned literature, or maybe even your favourite objects in the MFA. Prize goes to the best tweet(s) of the semester. To ensure that I see your tweet, @ me in the tweet itself (i.e. use both #worldofrome and @opietasanimi).
