Intermediate Latin  II     

Classical Mythology   

An introduction to the major myths of the gods and heroes of ancient Greece, along with their origins and interpretations. Because classical mythology played such an important role in the development of the Arts in Western civilization, this course has a strong visual component, and every lecture is accompanied by slides.

The textbook is Morford and Lenardon's Classical Mythology , and the instructor reads aloud from at least one ancient text during every class meeting. Evaluation is done on the basis of daily quizzes, along with a midterm and a final exam. All students are also required to take a map test and a slide based exam identifying all the major shapes of Greek vase treated in the class.

Same as INDI 245 and LATN 245. Fulfills the fine arts requirement.

CLAS/WOST 3460: WOMEN IN GREECE AND ROME

This course examines the evidence we have regarding the lives and societal position of women in the Ancient World from the Homeric Epics through the Roman Empire. Students read a variety of texts, including law cases, short stories, and manuals on estate management, as well as four Athenian plays. The course also deals with the visual arts and archeological evidence from the time period in order to convey as complete as possible a picture of women’s lives during these times. During the semester, each student will write a substantial research paper on the topic of their choice and deliver a 40-50 minute class presentation on that topic.
