This course provides an introduction to the history, culture, and society of ancient Greece. Topics covered will include politics and the law, women and gender relations, slavery, the gods and cultic practice, warfare, and the economy. Special attention will be paid to the distinctive historical trajectories of Athens and Sparta, but also to the connections between the Greeks and the other cultures of the eastern Mediterranean (e.g., Persia, Egypt, Phoenicia). Finally, we will examine critically the legacy of ancient Greece and the ways that it has been appropriated for various political purposes in the modern era.
