Standing male and female figures are the principal types followed, with increasing attention given to architectural sculpture culminating in the majestic programs decorating the Temple of Zeus at Olympia and the Parthenon in Athens.

Traditionally the indisputable focus of all reconstructions of ancient Greek culture, Athens offers an abundance of archaeological material which documents the tenacity of the Greek polis at its best. This course will examine specific monumental manifestations of the polis phenomenon in view of recently discovered evidence that has dramatically reshaped the archaeological profile of this city. Particular emphasis will be placed on the topographical exploration of the historical centre of the city (the Agora and the Acropolis) and its material configurations of public versus private and sacred versus secular space, on the interactions of the centre with the surrounding countryside of Attica in light of recent contributions of landscape archaeology, and last but not least, on the post-antique life of the city and its cultural traditions.

In order to nurture common and complementary intellectual interests within the broad field of Classical Archaeology, and to introduce students to the resources of the University and faculty members both within and outside IPCAA, IPCAA offers a Proseminar each Fall Academic Term. This is a required course, for one credit, for every incoming student (even those with a Master's degree from another institution). The Proseminar is organized by the IPCAA Director, but is team-taught by faculty from all of the departments participating in the Program.

The University of Michigan is a leader in the innovative application of IT in higher education. This course will enable graduate students in the Interdepartmental Program in Classical Art and Archaeology to utilize these resources and to develop ways to apply them to their teaching and research.

Technological advances revolutionized the way archaeologists approached their discipline in the 20th century. This course aims to acquaint students with the tools (such as scanning, AutoCAD, database design, digital mapping, web page design, and GIS analysis) necessary to be an archaeologist in the information age. It also considers current and potential applications of the information revolution for archaeology (such as web-based active learning strategies, on-line publication, and the uses of electronic data). By providing instruction in appropriate hardware and software, and also in the the concepts necessary to apply information technology to one's teaching and research, the course incorporates new developments in archaeology into the graduate curriculum of Michigan's Interdepartmental Program in Classical Art and Archaeology.

Weekly readings, computer assignments, and participation in discussion.
