CLCIV 480 - Studying Antiquity
Section: 001
Term: WN 2010
Subject: Classical Civilization (CLCIV)
Department: LSA Classical Studies
Waitlist Capacity:
Enforced Prerequisites:
Open only to concentrators in Classical Civilization, Classical Archaeology, Classical Language and Literature, Ancient Greek, Latin, and Modern Greek.
May be repeated for a maximum of 6 credit(s).
Primary Instructor:

This course is required for concentrators in Classical Civilization in their final year of study. Minors and non-concentrators may take the course with the permission of the instructor. The main aim of the course is to allow concentrators a chance to reflect on their course of study since becoming concentrators, and identify connections between the topics they have studied as well as areas of interest for further study. To this end, we will begin by assembling individual portfolios of work completed in various courses, and identify both strengths and gaps in

  1. areas of coverage;
  2. methods of analysis and interpretation,
  3. writing skills. We will then identify a series of topics and approaches to the ancient world that the class as a group would like to explore further over the course of the term. In addition to the portfolio assembled in the first part of the course, each student will be required to lead an in-class discussion of a topic, give a presentation on a topic of choice and write a 10-15 page research paper. A significant portion of the final part of the course will be dedicated to guiding students through the process of researching and writing this research paper.
