The Murder of Julius Caesar on the Ides of March: Why, What Happened, and What Didn't Happen?  

The assassination of Julius Caesar is one of Roman history's famous moments. Why did so-called 'tyrannicides' Brutus and Cassius (and many others) kill Caesar? What did they hope to achieve? Why did they fail to restore the Republic to freedom, and why indeed did they fail to make any plans beyond the murder itself? Professor Meyer will discuss what hopes and assumptions went into the actions of that fateful day.
