(also CLASS 2730 )(HB) (CA-AS)
4 credits.

Next offered 2014-2015.

A. Alexandridis.

Ancient Greece has for centuries been considered a model society for the West - a claim that has been contested numerous times, most dramatically in the late 20th century. With its focus on material evidence, this lecture class revisits some of the respective debates and the areas central to them, such as politics, urbanism, religion, theater, gender, slavery, Greeks and Others, medicine and the body, or humans and animals. In the wake of globalization, we will also discuss whether there is something like a universal cultural heritage.
