CLAS-130 Greeks and Barbarians 2nd 1/2 sem Greeks and Barbarians will examine the origins, growth, and eventual decline of deep-seated animosity of Greeks (primarily Athenians) toward natives of the Persian Empire in the Fifth Century BCE. While "barbarians," to Greeks, were any people who were not Greek, a very particular definition of a Persian "barbarian" developed, then evolved, during this time period, rooted primarily in the destruction that Persia wrought during two attacks on Greece. We will explore literature, art, architecture, clothing, and other material culture of the time to help us chart the evolution of this sense of the "barbarian."

CLAS-210 Anc Lit: Roman Comedy Alive 1st 1/2 sem Roman Comedy Alive will approach the sometimes silly and slapstick, sometimes dark and unsettling, comedy of ancient Rome through multiple approaches. We will read the plays as works of drama and literature, and understand them as products of their time and performance circumstances. We will also learn about them through acting them out, culminating in a performance of an excerpt of one of these plays at a small Classics conference meeting on campus in October. No theatre experience necessary, nor do you need actually to act during our big performance-there are other things you can contribute to the production. Satisfies the appreciation requirement in Beauty and Meaning in Works of Art. 01 --T-T-- 12:30 PM 01:45 PM .50 15 6 0
