    UnRoman Romans is a reader on socially stigmatized groups in ancient Rome: actors athletes, dancers, sex workers, and sexual non-conformists. This reader was created as part of a class and uses student-scholars who contributed parts of the reader as a course assignment. It contains out of copyright and original translations of ancient texts, along with introductions, glossaries, images and other explanatory material. This book is intended for use in upper-level academic studies and contains a number of very disturbing passages.
