Movements of people between different parts of the world, and the consequent meeting of contrasting cultures, are a familiar aspect of modern society. But what about the Greek world? How much did Greeks travel and live outside Greece itself? Where did they go? What did they find when they got there? What kind of settlements did they build? And how different was colonial society from the society of Greece itself? This course will explore the flow of Greek settlers to distant lands and address these questions. We shall look in detail at some of the areas Greek populations moved to, ranging from Asia Minor and the Black Sea region in the east, through southern Italy and Sicily, to France and North Africa in the west. The chronological range of the course will be from the eighth to the mid-fourth centuries B.C. Key issues we will address will be the motivations for this movement of people, the nature of relationships between Greeks and indigenous peoples of the areas where new settlements were founded, and the effects of this diaspora on Greece itself. An important aspect of the course will be to consider how far some recent conceptual frameworks such as post-colonial theory can be helpful in understanding these issues.
