CLASSICS 110: Gods and Humans in Greek Philosophical Thought (CLASSICS 310)

How did the Greeks conceive of the gods and divine wisdom? How did the gods communicate with humans in direct epiphanies and through oracles and divination? We will read the poetic fragments of Heraclitus and Parmenides, and several dialogues of Plato (Symposium, Republic, Phaedrus) to investigate their new conceptions of gods and humans. What kinds of divinities did the philosophers create? How could humans achieve divine wisdom? To what extent did the philosophers use traditional religious ideas? To address these questions, we will examine Greek representations of the gods in poetic texts and in the visual arts. We will also study the Orphic and Eleusinian mystery religions. nAdvanced undergrads may register

CLASSICS 116: Human Rights in Comparative and Historical Perspective (ETHICSOC 106, HUMRTS 106)

This course examines core human rights issues and concepts from a comparative and historical perspective. In the beginning part of the course we will focus on current debates about the universality of human rights norms, considering the foundation of the international human rights regime and claims that it is a product of western colonialism, imperialism, or hegemony. We will then discuss a series of issues where the debates about universality are particularly acute: gender inequality and discrimination, sexual violence, child marriage and forced marriage more generally, and other related topics. We will also consider the way in which issues of gender-based violence arise in the context of internal and international conflicts.
