Description: Ever wonder how those ancient stories of Greek gods and heroes come down to us? How we know about the great minds of Plato, Herodotus, and Aristotle, or about the Greek dramas that sowed the seeds for modern theater? Are you pursuing any number of STEM majors with technical and scientific terms that derive largely from Greek? Or maybe curious how an ancient Greek would pronounce sorority and fraternity names? We welcome you to “Elementary Ancient Greek I”, a course for all those interested in exploring the early stages of Western mythology, literature, philosophy, and science through the original language. You’ll be surprised how much ancient Greek you actually know!
Instructor: Tyson Sukava
Description: Ripped from the headlines of ancient Athenian true crime – a husband has murdered his wife’s lover: it is premeditated? A minor has accidentally killed another boy with an errant javelin: should it be considered a homicide? A series of sacred statues have been defaced by nocturnal vandals: could this be connected to a secret cult? Join our keen jury of fellow Greek prose readers as we explore courtroom dramas presented by the most famous Classical Athenian orators. Don’t be found guilty of missing out!

Description: What does the motto of Harry Potter’s school mean? How about “carpe diem”? What are we to make of such expressions as ipso facto, et cetera, or habeas corpus? Would you like to learn how to puzzle out the words behind words and increase your vocabulary and understanding of grammar? Please join us for “Elementary Latin I”, where we set off to explore the fascinating ancient world of the Latin language and encounter along the way the rich legacy it leaves for us. It’s sure to be of interest to history, language, and wizardry fans alike.
Description: This course will extend your mastery of Latin grammar while increasing your reading proficiency from the intermediate to the advanced level. We will complete our introduction to Latin grammar and begin to read longer passages of prose in Latin. Texts may include selections from Petronius (“Trimalchio’s Dinner Party,” about a bawdy feast), Apuleius (Metamorphoses, about a man turned into a donkey), or Eutropius (“War with Hannibal,” about Rome’s war against Carthage). In addition to translating works from Latin to English, we will also explore the texts’ cultural contexts and literary aspects.

Description: In your previous journeys through the world of Latin prose, you’ve likely sampled from a banquet of works exploring the public facing lives of famous ancient figures. Join us for this iteration of Latin 301/401 as we explore ‘epistolography’, or the study of ancient letters. Here, we shall grab glimpses of the private lives made public of famous (and not so famous) Romans. Along the way, we also explore the social and private lives of ancient people, the survival of these ephemeral writings, and textual analysis.

Prerequisite: LATN 202 or equivalent
Description: How close are original Greek and Roman myths to the versions you’ve heard? You would probably be surprised by the differences. The Classical tales of gods, heroes, and monsters form a tapestry of the raw and brutal elements of our universe. Woven into this are the threads of human adversity and, as is so often the case, human fragility in the face of legendary beasts, cruel kings, and the powerful Olympian gods.
Join us as we explore both popular and lesser-known myths from the Greek and Roman worlds. Along the way, we’ll uncover the fascinating origins, meanings, and histories of these stories that continue to inspire, shock, and amaze us today.
Description: In 79 C.E., the devastating eruption of Mt. Vesuvius obliterated the Roman town of Pompeii. Preserved in the volcanic debris was an astonishing window onto the ancient world: the bodies of Pompeii’s unfortunate residents; the buildings where they lived and worked; the objects that they used in their daily lives. Join us as we investigate what the physical remains of the city – bodies, architecture, art, and material culture – reveal about Roman society. We also will consider how ancient texts and modern theoretical approaches expand our understanding of the archaeological record, explore Pompeii’s rediscovery and excavation, and survey current discoveries at the site. No prior knowledge of Latin is required.
