Approaches to Social and Economic Ancient History

2110I [CRN: 25982]

This is a graduate seminar that reviews some current trends in the social and economic history of antiquity. The course aims to break out of a philological/text-oriented focus to a problem-based approach to the study of ancient history. Some of the themes are well-established whilst others are more actualité. The courses offers opportunities for graduate students to consider issues that can have some relevance to their own research questions and topics in their planned and current research projects. Many of the themes will be of equal interest Greek and Roman historians and Classicists alike.
