The Greeks


Introduction to the cultural history of ancient Greece from an interdisciplinary perspective, including art, architecture, literature, politics, economics, philosophy, technology, religion, and more. Readings and discussions organized around a series of case studies that focus on aspects of Greek society and culture and modern receptions and use thereof (e.g. slavery, democracy, PanHellenic games, colonization, language, and cultural hegemony, cultural 'borrowing,' Hellenization and the Greek east, ancient and modern racisms, and more). Students explore Greek constructions of culture and modern constructions of the same, to understand their use and abuse.
