  • The Odyssey

    It is hard to imagine a more joyful way to acquire excellent control of Homeric Greek than by reading, in its entirety (if possible), Homer's wonderful and captivating work, the Odyssey. Though it can be a little time-consuming initially, students quickly become familiar with the syntax and the vocabulary, and find great pleasure in immersing themselves in this thrilling masterpiece.

  • Selections from Greek Authors: Thucydides

    Thucydides Book 5: It begins with a corrupt line that seems to tell us that Athens’ truce (4.117-19) with the Spartans would continue; it ends with the diplomatic failure of the Melians’ conference with the Athenians. In between and inter alia, there are the deaths of Brasidas and Kleon, the story of Thucydides’ exile from Athens, and three verbatim or ‘raw’ (?) treaties: the peace of Nikias, the alliance of Athens and Sparta, and the ‘Quadruple Alliance’ (a treaty between Athenians, Argives, Mantineians, and Eleians—to which we shall compare IG I3 83). We shall translate the book with nitty-gritty philological attention; and we shall also be concerned with the overall narrative structure and the way the diplomatic documents fit into the text. Why did Thucydides insert verbatim or ‘raw’ treaties into his history? And are they in fact the real thing?

  • Identity, Repatriation, and Justice: International Relations Among Greek Cities 700 BCE - 90 BCE

    We study diplomatic documents, mainly in epigraphical sources, from all parts of the Greek world especially from the 5th to 2nd centuries BCE Alliances, international arbitrations, and decisions of foreign judges will be major concerns; we shall be particularly interested in agreements that are composed after wars or major disputes among citizens (staseis) are ended, especially in arrangements that are made to foster harmony between citizens who have remained in a polis with fellow citizens who have returned from exile; and also in arrangements to solve disputes over land ownership and to promote economic growth. Our texts are not only diplomatic instruments (treaties, arbitrations, etc.) but also letters of monarchs and dynasts and honorary decrees. As a final project, students are to prepare a dossier of texts relating to one particular polity, documenting its relations with another city or cities, or to divisions within its own population.
