1. Whitacre, Amanda Joree. Disability and Ability in the Accounts of the Emperor Claudius.

Degree: MA, College of Arts and Sciences / Department of Modern and Classical Language Studies, 2018, Kent State University

This thesis examines the passages in Seneca’s <i>Apocolocyntosis</i>, Suetonius’ <i>Lives of the Caesars</i>, and Dio’s <i>Roman History</i>, which pertain to the Emperor Claudius’ disability. The passages are discussed in terms of how they reflect the Roman perception of disability. This perception equates leadership with physical control of one’s body and hence portrays Claudius as an unsuitable leader. The thesis concludes with portions of a letter which Claudius wrote to the Alexandrians, the contents of which reveal Claudius as a man who commands authority, making him appear as a capable leader despite what his physical differences implied. Advisors/Committee Members: Larson, Jennifer (Advisor).
