GREEK 502. Elementary Greek.

Graduate Courses

Section 001 Meets with Greek 101.001.

Instructor(s): Arthur Verhoogt

Prerequisites: Graduate standing. (3).

Credits: (3).

Course Homepage: No homepage submitted.

In combination with Greek 102, this is the first half of a year-long introduction to ancient Greek and is designed to prepare students for the reading of Greek texts. Greek 101 concentrates on fifth-century B.C. Attic Greek which was the language of the "golden age" of Athens. The Greek language of that time and place represents a cultural and linguistic central point from which students can pursue their own interests within a wide range of Greek literature which extends from the Homeric epics to the Byzantine era and which includes the archaic, classical, and Hellenistic periods as well as the koine Greek of the New Testament. The purpose of the course is to develop the fundamentals of the language so that these fundamentals can then be applied to whatever area of ancient Greek students wish to pursue.

The hundreds of thousands of documents found in Egypt have a lot to offer for students in many fields. Archaeologists, Ancient Historians, and Historians of Law are among those who benefit from the many new discoveries in the field that studies these documents, papyrology. The problems that concern the papyri are less known., although awareness of these problems is necessary for a good understanding and use of papyrological documents in the various fields. This course will introduce students to the methods of papyrology. How are texts edited? What are the possible mistakes that can be made during this process? How can you find whether or not these mistakes have been corrected? These questions will be addressed by bringing students into contact with the actual editing process with the use of original texts from the Michigan Papyrus collection. The course will further discuss the contributions of papyrology in various fields, such as ancient economy and archaeology, as well as the limitations of the evidence and the methodological constraints that scholars face in those fields.

GREEK 807. Aristophanes.

Graduate Courses

Section 001.

Instructor(s): James Porter (jport@umich.edu)

Prerequisites: Graduate standing. (3).

Credits: (3; 2 in the half-term).

Course Homepage: http://www-personal.umich.edu/~jport/courses/classics/Aristophanes.html

This seminar will serve as a general introduction to Aristophanes, although it will not pretend to being a survey. Our focus in class will be on Aristophanes' poetic imagination and the emerging languages of Greek poetics. Much of the class will be given over to studying two plays in particular, Thesmophoriasuzae and Frogs, taken as examples of self-aware works of art and as witnesses to contemporary developments in thinking about art and poetry in all its genres. The first several weeks will be devoted to background issues in 5th- and 4th-c. theories of language and the earliest attempts at literary criticism, theory, and scholarship.

Students will be asked to read two additional plays, one of which will be Clouds (with Dover's commentary), the other being optional. Two translation exams will be administered, at mid-term and at the term's end (with some sight passages). Requirements: two presentations, the first on either of the two required plays (and associated secondary literature/background), and a second at the end of term on a research topic leading to a final paper (20 pp.). Research papers needn't be restricted to poetics and can be on any topic or play including Thesmo. or Frogs; other possible topics might be formal elements of Old Comedy, performance, Aristophanes' comic rivals, history, politics, religion, reception, and so on. Graduate Standing or permission of instructor is required. OCT's and Dover's Oxford commentaries on Frogs and Clouds will be available at Shaman Drum bookstore.
