  • 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.

  • 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.
