Ancient Greek Philosophy in Context

Greek Mythology: The Mythologies of Athens
This class surveys the central stories, gods, heroes, and monsters of Athenian myth. We will study a variety of ancient literary and mythographical sources and interpret them in their cultural context. Many of the readings relate directly to the sites we visit.
Love in Greek Antiquity and the Middle Ages
This seminar surveys literary accounts of love in Greek Antiquity and Byzantium. Questions of particular interest are those concerning the role of eros in myth, religion, and society, including homoeroticism, gender roles, physical attraction, standards of beauty, intellectual love, and friendship.
