Project Review

This program is a faculty-led summer program which offers participants the chance to examine the politics, society, and culture of ancient Athens while at the same time witnessing Athens as the cultural, industrial, and political center of modern Greece. This program examines the literature, society, monuments, artifacts, and culture of classical Athens and other regions of Greece. Students will be able to examine archaeological remains, literary texts, and the viewpoints of modern scholars right in the heart of Greece. Past programs have included visits to the Acropolis, Mycenae, Olympia, Delphi, and Aegina.Students will earn three credits in Classics 371: Topics in Greek Culture. Studying the archaeological remains closely together with relevant literary texts (such as Aristophanes, Herodotus, Thucydides) as well as the viewpoints of modern scholars, the class will consider the defining characteristics of the Athenian city-state (polis) and will reconstruct the daily life of the citizen men and women, resident aliens, and slaves who inhabited ancient Athens. Discussion may include topics such as the public and private use of space, and the impact of democracy, war, and imperialism on Athenian culture and art. Although priority will be given to the study of material evidence so that students can benefit fully from travel to Greece, the class will focus its attention on historical questions such as the relationship between Pericles' building projects and his political program, and the rise of private displays of wealth in the public cemetery of Athens.
