  • Ancient Philosophy

    Ancient Greek views about the prospects and limits of reason in the human being's search for a good and valuable life. What the best life is; how, and how far, reason can provide for its realization; what social/political conditions it requires; how vulnerable it is (and should be) to uncontrolled happenings. Authors include Euripides, Thucydides, Plato, Aristotle, Epicurus, Lucretius, Augustine, and Dante.

  • 21st century Classics

    The changing face of Classics, the study of Greek and Roman culture and literatures, and their receptions, has never been more turbulent than in the early 21st century. Why do we study these cultures, and what do they mean to us? Who is us? This course grapples with these questions of relevance and has been designed with input from Brown undergraduate and graduate students to try to bridge the multiple divides that can separate those who are already engaged in Classical studies from the majority who may never have thought about studying these cultures. This introductory course considers: literature, art, fine arts, history, and culture; embraces historiography and ideology, critical race theory and meets head on the exclusive past with which Classics has been associated.

  • The Idea of Self

    Literature gestures us toward a certain kind of knowledge not quite psychological, not quite philosophical. We read widely in the classical and medieval traditions in order to gauge the peculiar nature of what this knowledge tells us about experience and the ways in which expressions of selfhood abide or are changed over time. Authors include but are not limited to Sappho, Pindar, Catullus, Horace, Augustine, and Fortunatus.

  • High Crimes and Misdemeanors: Impeachment trials and their Rhetoric

    This course explores the history of impeachment trials in Athens, Britain, and the USA. We study some of the early deployments of impeachment (eisangelia in Greek) at Athens, its brief flourish in fourteenth century Britain, and its flowering in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. Subsequently we turn to the impeachment of Warren Hastings in 1788-1795 and then to the earliest impeachments in the US. We keep in mind the different time periods and governmental structures (direct democracy, monarchy with parliament, representative democracy) and investigate how legal processes--and their rhetoric--function in each of them.
    CLAS 1175 S01

  • Heroes and Heroism in Graeco - Roman Antiquity and Beyond

    Examines the concept of hero, an ancient Greek word, which had a wide variety of meanings and was employed to designate a series of diverse characters of myth. We will trace the evolution of this idea through a detailed analysis of its uses in Greek and Roman texts, and also contrast its ancient sense with present day conceptions of the hero and heroism. All readings will be in English. The course is open to all undergraduates, but preference will be given to juniors and seniors. Enrollment limited to 25.

  • Vision and Visualization in Literature: The Rhetoric of Enargeia

    How does writing make us see? We will study rhetorical concepts of “vivid description” (enargeia, phantasia, evidentia) from ancient Greek and Roman theory and literary practice and follow their reception in later periods and literary traditions, including modern evaluations of their significance (all readings in English). Taking texts from poetry, historiography, philosophy, and elsewhere, we will explore “vividness” particularly in terms of tropes of persona-fashioning (prosōpopoeia) and subject-positioning, with attention to the ethical and ideological implications that that may entail, and explore its relations with such topics as ecphrasis, narratology, and spectacularity.

  • The Greek Chorus

    One of the most striking features of Greek drama is the presence of a chorus whose members dance, sing, and contribute to the dramatic action in ways that puzzle modern audiences. Besides the drama, choruses are also found in other genres: in victory odes for champions of athletic competitions, in hymns to gods and goddesses, and in other forms such as the dithyramb. In this class, we will read a representative selection of choral lyric, from Alcman to Aristophanes, including major figures such as Pindar, Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides.

  • Hellenistic Literature

    Greek poetry shows a wealth of creative innovation under the new imperial states that followed Alexander the Great’s conquests and were ultimately absorbed into the Roman Empire. Older forms such as epic and tragedy continue alongside new creations such as epigram and bucolic. This course aims to increase proficiency in Greek by reading a selection of Hellenistic poetry with attention to its language, styles, and cultural background; we shall pay special attention to the period’s new consolidation of Greek literature and its reflections of Greek encounters with Jewish, Egyptian, and other cultures. Attention will also be given to textual problems, including those presented by papyrus discoveries.

  • Lucian

    The funniest and most impressive writer of Greek prose during the imperial period (not to mention the alleged inventor of science fiction), it is no wonder that Lucian was a favorite author from the Renaissance to the early 20th century. But he was also regularly reviled -- Martin Luther once thundered at Erasmus, “you ooze Lucian from every pore” (it wasn’t a compliment). This class will focus on his philosophical satires and contextualize those satires within the philosophies of the second century CE. Along with primary and secondary readings – not only from Lucian but also authors like Galen and Sextus Empiricus – we will discuss the texts, the times, and the nature of Lucian’s philosophical skepticism.

In an effort to understand Tacitus' place in the ancient historiographical tradition, we will read several secondary sources, many of which respond to (or build on) Ronald Syme's monumental work.

  • Elementary Sanskrit I

    This introduction to the Sanskrit language does not require prior knowledge of any language other than English. Students learn the Devanāgarī script and modes of transcription, the phonetics of Sanskrit, and an outline of most of its foundational grammar, with a goal of being able to begin reading classical Sanskrit literature in the original. Reading exercises are drawn from ancient narrative texts such as the Hitopadeśa, Devīmāhātmya, and Mahābhārata.

  • The Bhāgavata Purāṇa: Text and Reception

    The Bhāgavata Purāṇa narrates the stories of Kṛṣṇa and other gods and is rich with philosophical and theological discourse. Though relatively late, it became one of the most prominent religious texts, attracting many formal commentaries from the 13th century into the modern period. In this course, students will apply their knowledge of the foundational grammar of language to interpret the complex, poetic language of the Bhāgavata, and learn the language and idioms of scholastic Sanskrit to access the interpretations of centuries of the Purāṇa's audiences.
