  • 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.

  • 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"?

  • Dreaming in the Ancient World

    Dreaming has always been part of our everyday experience. But did the Greeks and Romans dream any differently than we do? How and why did they extract meaning from their nightmares and daydreams? In this course, we will explore the cultural history of dreams and dream interpretation, a curious practice that stands at a fascinating intersection in the history of ideas between psychology, religion, and medicine. Readings (all in translation) include Homer, Herodotus, Plato, Egyptian magical papyri, Babylonian dream diaries, Cicero, Freud, and more. No previous knowledge of the Ancient World required.

  • 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.

  • Seven Wonders of the Ancient World

    "Everyone has heard of the Seven Wonders of the World," wrote Philo of Byzantium two millennia ago, and it's still true today. But what's a "Wonder"? And why seven of them? Why make such a list anyway, then or now? This class will use ancient texts, explorers' accounts, and archaeological investigations to travel through several thousand years of history in the Mediterranean and Near Eastern world. We will consider how the Seven Wonders captured past imaginations; the aura of technological achievements; the intersections of history, memory, invention, and myth; and how members of one culture view another culture's monuments.

  • Goddesses and Women Gurus in South Asian Religious Traditions

    Indian Religions have featured some prominent female figures: fierce goddesses, domestic goddesses, legendary women sages, and historical women poets. These figures can be used to empower female authority and agency, but can also be used to construct normative gender roles that limit societally accepted agency for women. This course will explore the canonical narratives of these prominent female figures and the reception of these narratives in various historical contexts. It will also examine the contemporary reception of these figures, looking both at those who champion the progressive possibilities they represent as well as feminist and subaltern critiques.

  • 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.

  • Greek Life: Athens as a College Town Under the Roman Empire

    This course focuses on the role of Athens as one of the most important educational centers of the Roman Empire to examine themes in the cultural history of the Eastern Mediterranean from the 2nd to the 6th century CE. Students traveled from all over the Roman world to study in Athens, celebrity professors competed to attract the biggest classes, and freshmen joining fraternities were subjected to bizarre hazing rituals. Course topics include the Second Sophistic, the educational curriculum, Paganism and Christianity in Late Antiquity, Neoplatonism, and the fate of Athens as an urban center. All readings in English translation.

  • Aristotle's Theology in Metaphysics Lambda

    Metaphysics Lambda (Book XII) is a self-contained series of lectures presenting in its first five chapters an overview of Aristotle’s natural philosophy and metaphysics (first philosophy) and culminating in its last five chapters in his tantalizing treatment of divine substance and its causal role in the cosmos. Among the questions to be asked: What is first philosophy and how does Lambda—finally developing Aristotle's theology—fit into that larger project? How does God govern the cosmos as an object of love? How should we understand the claims that God thinks himself and that “thinking is thinking of thinking”?

  • Cicero at the End of the Republic: Politics, Letters, and Philosophy

    We study Cicero's writings from the last months of his life, when both his own personal legacy and the fate of the Republic were at stake. During this turbulent period he produced the Philippics against his arch-enemy Mark Antony, letters offering an intimate perspective on friendship and family life, and the De Officiis, a treatise on ethical duties that became one of the most influential works of moral philosophy ever written. We read the Second Philippic, several letters, and most of De Officiis Book I in Latin, plus selections of other Philippics and all the De Officiis in English.

  • Augustan Literature and Egypt

    This seminar studies Hellenistic influence on Latin poetry and Roman ideology in the period of Rome’s slide from a dysfunctional oligarchy to an autocracy. We will focus on how such authors as Virgil, Horace, Propertius, and Ovid assimilate and transform the imperial literature of the Greek East in the time of Augustus’ conquest of Egypt, both accommodating a poetics of monarchy and opening up adversarial standpoints within the same discourse. We will also look at earlier and later Latin poetry and prose texts to place this poetry within literary and political history.

  • Film Classics: The Greeks on the Silver Screen

    This course examines the adaptation of classical Greek themes and figures in world cinema. Proceeding from classical texts (that will include The Odyssey, The Iliad, Oedipus Rex, Medea, The Oresteia), analysis of films focuses on the ways such texts are recast to comment upon very different cultural, socioeconomic, and political circumstances. How do such films aspire to be “classic” in their own right? What genres or modes follow such films’ epic, or anti-epic, cycles? Considers Hollywood blockbusters (Ulysses, Jason and the Argonauts, Troy, 300) as well as arthouse fare by Godard, Pasolini, Camus, Merchant, Cacoyannis, Dassin, the Coen brothers, Angelopoulos.
