Description

Ancient Greece was a world of cities, each with its own distinctive local identity and culture. In this course we home in on one specific element of that culture for detailed examination, namely, the painted pottery that was used in civic, religious, domestic and funerary contexts. Focusing on vessels depicting scenes inspired by aspects of urban life, we ask how the images varied across space and time; what those variations might mean; and to what extent the lives of the inhabitants of the different cities can be glimpsed through the scenes that are represented. The course covers pottery made between the eighth and fourth centuries BCE.

Course Requirements:

Assessment will be via one short class presentation, two brief writing assignments and a longer final project. (There will be no exam.)

Intended Audience:

First year students. No previous knowledge of the ancient Greek world is required.

Class Format:

Two meetings per week combining lecture and discussion
