ARAS 225 - The Ancient World in 12 Objects


CR: 3
This class explores the role of material objects in the lives, ideology, politics, religion, and society of ancient cultures. Who were these ancient societies? How was history and identity created? The course will examine either one culture each semester (including Greece, Rome, and Egypt) or will investigate multiple societies over the course of one semester. We will explore the ways in which ancient societies defined their cultural identities, investigating the types of information that are made accessible by the integration of material and visual evidence, which highlight aspects of human experiences that are not attainable through the exploration of texts alone. Offered alternate years. Can be repeated if topics change. III.O, V.1, V.5
