  • 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. WRIT

  • Sport in the Ancient Greek World

    Athletics and sports were as popular and significant in the ancient Greek world as they are today, and so offer an excellent introduction to its archaeology and history. This class will discuss the development of Greek athletics, the nature of individual events, the social implications of athletic professionalism, women and athletics, and the role of sport in Greek education.

  • The Literary Worlds of Late Antiquity

    We study the manifold literary forms championed in those centuries when Greco-Roman literature was transformed by social, spiritual, and creative forces perhaps unparalleled in the western tradition. Genres to be studied include: history (Gregory of Tours), consolation (Boethius), lyric (Ausonius and Fortunatus), hymnody (Prudentius), epic (Juvencus), apology (Tertullian), the philosophic dialogue (Augustine), the cento (Proba), among others. Close attention will be paid to contextualizing these authors and genres in the Greco-Roman tradition and in their late ancient configurations. WRIT

  • Greek Tragedy

    An investigation of many of the surviving plays of the Greek tragedians Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides. Considers the diverse aspects of ancient drama: the context, both religious and sociopolitical; issues of theatrical production, the poetic texture of the plays; and the influence of classical drama on later drama and western thought. Additional readings may include Aristophanes' Frogs and Thesmophoriazusae and selections from Aristotle's Poetics, the earliest criticism of Greek tragedy. WRIT

  • Witches and Vixens: Nasty Women in Ancient Greece and Rome

    What do video vixens and Foxy Brown have in common with "Witchy Woman"? These modern metaphors continue a long history of equating female sexual allure with dangers found in/or capable of subverting Nature. This course will use contemporary methodologies to make sense of similar descriptions of women found in Greco-Roman literature: how do the Greeks and Romans express a concern about gender, ethnicity, class, and/or politics using these metaphors? How do these same categories help distinguish what is "natural" from "unnatural"? To what end does this discourse about women and nature affect law, public space, or other aspects of "civilization"?

  • Epic Poetry from Homer to Lucan

    Traces the rich history and manifold varieties of the genre of epic poetry in the literatures of ancient Greece and Rome beginning with Homer's Iliad and Odyssey (VII c. B.C.) and ending with Lucan's Civil War (I. c. A.D.). Masterpieces such as Virgil's Aeneid and Ovid's Metamorphoses are included. Original sources read in translation. WRIT

  • Alexander to Cleopatra: Greek Literature and Culture

    The Classical Greek culture most familiar to us was codified and developed during the 300-year Hellenistic period, beginning with Alexander the Great and his successors, who turbocharged that culture with the wealth and energies of the ancient multiethnic empires they conquered, including Egypt and Persia. Greek becomes a medium for global aspirations and competing perspectives on the world; Rome inherited these visions of a hybrid, globalist culture and consciously translated them into one we still live with. This course studies the literature and thought of this period down to Cleopatra, the last Hellenistic monarch to fall to the Roman empire.

  • Classical Philosophy of India

    This course introduces the classical traditions of philosophy in India. After presenting a general overview of this discourse and its basic Brahminic, Buddhist, and Jain branches, the course will examine selected traditions and themes from both the several schools concerned entirely with gaining ultimate beatitude (the Highest Good) (the schools known as Sāmkhya, Yoga, Theravada Buddhism, Mahāyāna Buddhism, Jainism, and Vedānta) and the schools that concentrate on issues of logic, metaphysics, and language and hermeneutics (Nyāya, Vaiśeshika, and Pūrva Mīmāmsā, respectively).

  • Mediterranean Culture Wars: Archaic Greek History, c. 1200 to 479 BC

    From the end of the Bronze Age to the end of the Persian Wars is a period of considerable change in the Mediterranean and beyond. The Greek polis challenges the powers of the ancient Near East. Over seven centuries we meet Greek writing, Homeric epic, and the first historian (Herodotus). But the Greek world lay on the edges of the Ancient Near East and this course tries to offer a more balanced approach than the typically Hellenocentric perspective of the standard textbooks. CLAS 1210 addresses political, social and economic history. Literary, epigraphical and archaeological cultures provide the evidence. WRIT

  • The Age of Tiberius

    This course investigates the political, social, and literary culture of the twenty-three-year period that constituted the Principate of Tiberius, the second Roman emperor. Marked by unprecedented social upheaval and conventionally characterized as a time of literary and political retrenchment, the era has been undervalued and understudied, despite a wealth of relevant new documentary evidence and recent re-assessment of several literary works of the immediate post-Augustan age. This course aims to serve both classicists and ancient historians by integrating literary and historical study through weekly readings in both documentary and literary sources.

  • Introduction to Greek Literature

    Introduction to Greek literature through intensive reading. Prerequisite: GREK 0200, GREK 0110, or the equivalent. This course focuses on translation and comprehension of Classical Greek prose. The goal is to expand your vocabulary, increase your ease with morphology, and deepen your understanding of syntax as each of these elements of the language interact with each other. The primary text will be Plato’s Symposium, in which Socrates and other guests at a drinking party consider the nature of love, ἔρως and its role in personal relationships, education, and even politics.
  • Greek Drama

    Introduction to the study of Athenian drama. Thorough translation of one or two tragedies of Euripides; if time permits, a comedy of Menander (who was much influenced by Euripides) will be added for comparison.

  • Herodotus

    How do we read Herodotus' Histories in today's post-truth era? Once known as part of the 'Liar School', today's 'Father of History' is better understood as a commentator on cultural difference, an artful story teller, and an astute observer of historical methods. This course focuses on Herodotus Book VIII which retells the critical naval conflicts between the Greeks and Persia at Artemision and Salamis in 480 BCE. The depictions of Xerxes and Themistokles serve as an appetizer for the "debate" where Herodotus evokes Panhellenism and Greece's debt to Athens. This Advanced Greek course is suitable for Undergraduates and Graduates.

  • The Twilight of Classical Athens

    Why did Athens fall to Macedon? How did the citizens prepare--and when and how did they know that their city's 'miracle' was over? In this seminar we will explore Athenian cultural production--inscriptions, speeches, poetic fragments, material culture, etc.--from the second half of the fourth century CE, guided by an interest in tracing the city's anticipation and experience of the last days of its celebrated democracy. We will read major works by Isocrates, Demosthenes, Aeschines, Lycurgus and Hyperides, explore current trends in scholarship on this period, and consider the material's relevance for today.

  • Decolonizing Classical Antiquity: White Nationalism, Colonialism, and Ancient Material Heritage

    Why do the material remnants of classical antiquity still attract public attention and exercise symbolic power? Why have such monuments been "used" by authorities and diverse social groups in the service of often totalitarian agendas? What are the cases where these monuments operate as weapons for resistance? How has colonial, racial, and national modernity shaped the way we understand and experience the materiality of the classical? Finally, how can we decolonise classical antiquity? We will use a diversity of global case studies, including modern Greece and Europe, and a variety of sources, from ethnographically derived performances to digital culture.
