ARAS 105 - The Ancient Mediterranean Laboratory


CR: 3
Using the principles of design thinking, this course explores the ways in which the ancient world can provide solutions to contemporary problems. Through an initial “upvote” students will isolate five major problems facing the world today. The course will then turn to the textual, visual, and material records of Egypt, Ancient Iran, Greece, Rome, and their affiliated territories as data sets from which students can identify problems; together we will explore the actions, events, and environments that produced these problems, and the solutions posed by past thinkers, using these investigations as a springboard from which to ask the question: How would I solve the problem differently? Offered alternate years. V.2
