Who is Greek? There are many people on an American campus who proudly call themselves "Greek": frats and sorors, gays and lesbians, young and old, immigrants and Greek-Americans, scholars and collectors, fans of things classical or just Big Fat, and many more. These people use Greek words such as Athletics, Ethics, Erotics, Aesthetics, and Politics to claim their Greek identity. But who is truly entitled to such an identity? This course looks for "Greeks" at Michigan (student groups, buildings, museums, departments, streets) since the founding of the University in 1817, and finds them everywhere.

Course Requirements:

class participation; term paper on a U-M organization/institution; midterm; final
