Giuseppe Castiglione was an Italian Jesuit Brother who went to China as a missionary in 1715. He served as court painter under three Emperors of China and developed a completely new style of Chinese painting that incorporated Western perspective.
Professor Norena will talk about the constitutional framework of the Roman Republic and its founding principles of separation of powers, checks and balances, and rights of citizenship. He will explain how this model ultimately collapsed.
