Description

This course explores the history of trans-regional interactions in the frontier zones and borderlands of the ancient world, ca. 1000 BCE to 1000 CE, drawing on case studies from empires of Mesopotamia (e.g. the Assyrian empire), the Mediterranean region (e.g. the Roman empire), and east Asia (e.g. the Han empire). We will examine the emergence of frontier societies, cultures, identities, and processes as consequences of political, economic, and cultural interactions between different polities and peoples. The readings will include translations of original sources, archaeological case studies, theoretical frameworks, and comparative approaches from other periods and fields.

Course Requirements:

Five quizzes (20%), short paper (15%), take-home midterm exam (20%), final paper (30%), participation (15%).

Intended Audience:

No prerequisites, everyone welcome.

Class Format:

Combination of lectures and discussion.
