Examines various topics and themes in Greek history. Content varies.
This is the Ancient Greek History Field Course. It will concentrate on the Hellenistic/Roman period. We will use a common source, Peter Green's Alexander to Actium. Students will pursue individual themes, in accord with their larger focus in the program; eg. Developments in religion or philosophy, nature of Hellenistic monarchy, rise of leagues in Greece, military features, interaction between Rome and the eastern Mediterranean. Our approach will be chronological. Consequently, each meeting will provide the occasion to share feautures of the individual themes that are pertinent to that period of time. Short written descriptive analyses of the individual reading will be due weekly. There is no research paper for the seminar.
