CLASSICS 87: Egyptomania! The Allure of Ancient Egypt Over the Past 3,500 Years (AFRICAAM 87, HISTORY 244)

Why does Egypt fascinate us? From Napoleon's invasion to Katy Perry's latest music video, we have interpreted ancient Egyptian history and mythology for centuries; in fact, this obsession dates back to the Egyptians themselves. This seminar explores Egyptomania from the Pharaonic period to the 20th century. Topics include: ancient Egypt, Greek historians, medieval Arabic scholars, hieroglyphic decipherment, 19th century travel, 20th century pop culture, and how historians have interpreted this past over the centuries.

CLASSICS 101G: Advanced Greek: Plato on Poetry

(Formerly CLASSGRK 111.)  Plato¿s discussions on poetry's inspiration, performance, and its relationship to philosophy had an immense influence on literary reception and aesthetics in classical antiquity.

Our primary objective will be to achieve a fluid reading ability for Plato¿s language and syntax.

CLASSICS 102G: Advanced Greek: Funeral Orations by Lysias, Gorgias, Thucydides and Plato

(Formerly CLASSGRK 112.) The funeral oration (epitaphios logos) is an important genre of speech whose performance in Classical Athens involved central aspects of the polis' life, such as collective memory, interpretation of the past, civic values, politics and, indeed, the art of speaking well. This genre was performed in real occasions (as archeological/historical sources show), and it was closely imitated in other genres such as philosophy and history. We will read the funeral orations by Lysias and Gorgias, the speech of Pericles in Thucydides (book II) and the speech of Aspasia, Pericles' mistress, preserved in one of Plato's most enigmatic dialogues, the Menexenus. Classics majors and minors may repeat for credit with advance approval from the Director of Undergraduate Studies.
