INSTRUCTORS: Dan Davis (Classics); Olga Michels (Chemistry)
Course Description: This course, taught completely in Greece, will explore the history, mythology and epic landscapes of ancient Greece, from temples and caves to Bronze Age palaces and ancient theaters. Our itinerary will include Athens and the Acropolis, Delphi (home of Apollo), Vergina (home of Alexander the Great), Corinth (Pegasus), Mycenae (Agamemnon), Tiryns (Hercules), Argos (Perseus), and Olympia, home of the Olympic Games. Along the way we’ll learn how history, archaeology, and mythology shaped ancient, medieval, and modern Greek identity, and we will reflect on the numerous ways in which Greek myths and tragedies delve deep into the human condition.
