CLAS 140 - From Athens to Alexander

Unit(s): 4

This course introduces students to the world of Ancient Greece, a culture not only preeminent in the ancient Mediterranean but also a continuing presence in the modern Western world. While Ancient Greece was the birthplace of democracy, home of Homer, Plato, and Sappho, and unparalleled literary and artistic achievements, it was also defined by violence, misogyny, slave labor, immigration, and conquest. Surveying the landscape of Ancient Greece from multiple perspectives, positions, and time periods, this course considers how these contradictions were embedded in the fabric and culture of the ancient world, and how they continue into our own through the “Classical inheritance.’
