Section Information for Fall 2017

This course explores the political, social, economic, and cultural history of classical Greece from the emergence of city-states to the rise of Macedonia as the dominant regional power in the 4th century BC.  The rich achievements of the classical world are scrutinized through diverse forms of evidence, including ancient literature, artistic achievements, and the archaeological record.  A wide array of primary and secondary sources provides materials for critical analyses and better understanding of approaches to the study of history. From language and architecture to social concepts such as democracy, the ideals of the Greeks have resonated across time. Their legacies bind together time and place, tying Greek history to our own.
