This talk examines the Roman-period theater as a cognitive ecology, one that supported and engaged different modes of thinking and learning by its occupants during nondramatic, civic and political gatherings. Using cognitive theory as a heuristic framework, this talk argues that the architecture and sculptural displays worked in tandem with controlled seating and specific manners of dress to promote effective learning about social class and cultural and civic identities.
