LLCU 323-010/080 Greek Tragedy

This course is a survey of ancient Greek tragedy and the society that produced it. We will accomplish this by reading and discussing the works of the three great Athenian tragedians (Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides) of the fifth century BCE. Moreover, as plays written for competition in civic festivals, for a community that limited full citizen participation to men, not women, we will also focus on how Greek tragedy deals with the figures of women.

3 credit hours

LLCU 336 Society & Spectacle in Ancient Greece and Rome

From the political machinations of the Athenian tyrant Peisistratus to the mysterious death of the Roman empress Agrippina; from the legendarily strange customs of Spartan men and women to the bloody gladiator and gladiatrix in the Roman arena, Classical culture provides a bounty of stories that continue to engage, surprise, and influence the modern world. In this course, we navigate the changing spaces for women and men to see and be seen as spectacles in antiquity. Specific topics include ancient combat, political intrigue, and the gendering of public and private entertainment.
