CLASSICS 12G: Intermediate Greek: Herodotus - the father of history?

(Formerly CLASSGRK 102.) Herodotus of Halicarnassus (ca. 484 - 426) has often been celebrated as the "father of history." But the promised "display of his research" owes much to the Homeric poems, contemporary tragedy, and the medical discourse, and it contains lengthy passages quite fabulous and mysterious. We will read sections of book 1 and 8 in Greek, review morphology and syntax as needed, and reflect on the Ionic enlightenment, Herodotus' role therein, and his status as a historian. Classics majors and minors may repeat for credit with advance approval from the Director of Undergraduate Studies.

CLASSICS 34: Ancient Athletics

(Formerly CLASSGEN 34.) How the Olympic Games developed and how they were organized. Many other Greek festivals featured sport and dance competitions, including some for women, and showcased the citizen athlete as a civic ideal. Roman athletics in contrast saw the growth of large-scale spectator sports and professional athletes. Some toured like media stars; others regularly risked death in gladiatorial contests and chariot-racing. We will also explore how large-scale games were funded and how they fostered the development of sports medicine. Weekly participation in a discussion section is required; enroll in sections on coursework.
