A survey of ancient Greek history from the Bronze Age until the death of Alexander the Great. Topics to be discussed include: interactions between Greece and other ancient civilizations; the development of Greek city-states (e.g., at Athens and Sparta); local or regional identities and the formation of a common Greek identity (panhellenism); society and culture. Readings will include mainly ancient texts in translation and some modern scholarship. Course consists of lectures and sections in which students make critical use of sources to discuss and debate historical questions. Final grade is based on two tests, frequent short writing assignments, and participation in discussions. Everyone welcome (no special background required).
