Archaeology of Egypt and Nubia CLCV V3101 Section 001 Ellen Morris Tuesday and Thursday 10:10am - 11:25am 3pts Thanks to the pyramids of Giza, the treasure of Tutankhamun, and other remains of royal activity, pharaonic Egypt is justly famous for its monuments and material culture. Equally fascinating, if less well known, however, are the towns, fortresses, cultic centers, domestic spaces, and non-elite cemeteries that have been excavated over the past 200 years or so. The archaeology of Nubia is also little known but fascinating on many levels. This course will focus on what archaeology can reveal about life as it was experienced by individuals of all social classes. Through a combination of broad surveys and case studies of some of Egypt and Nubia's most culturally indicative and intriguing sites, we will explore issues such as the origins of inequality, state formation and its effects, the uneasy mix of state-planned settlements and village life, urbanism, domestic and community worship, gendered spaces, ethnicity and colonialism, religious revolution and evolution, bureaucracy, private enterprise, and the effects of governmental collapse on life and death in ancient Egypt and Nubia.

Women in Antiquity CLCV V3158 Section 001 Kristina milnor Tuesday and Thursday 9:10am - 10:25am 3pts

Ancient Cities: Urbanism CLCV W6066 Section 001 Ellen Morris Monday 11:00am-12:50pm 4pts In this seminar we will explore a wide variety of ancient Near Eastern and Mediterranean cities, as well as the theoretical frameworks that inform their development, growth, and contraction over time. Cities thrive for different reasons; some are grounded on trade and markets, others on sacred centers or military bases, while others are fashioned as if from scratch to fit a particular political ideology. In addition to reading texts focussing on specific cities and on overarching issues, each of you will develop an expertise on one particular city and will examine issues of broad interest as they are manifest in that city. Such issues include city-planning vs. organic growth, the position of the city within a general settlement pattern, its relationship to its hinterland, its political status, neighborhoods, ethnic enclaves, slums, topography, landscape, markets, industry, temples, palaces, memorials, and arenas to showcase political, sacred, and spectacular performance.

Comedy Past and Present CLLT V3140 Section 001 Elizabeth Scharffenberger Tuesday and Thursday 6:10pm - 7:25pm 3pts. Ancient Greek and Roman comedies are studied along with their modern English counterparts, as we explore how fantasy and satire have been developed as tools for grappling with political, social and cultural issues. Authors may include Aristophanes, Petronius, Lucian, Apuleius, Seneca, Tom Stoppard, Thomas Pynchon, Douglas Adams and John Waters.

Classical Myth and English Poetry CLLT 83806 Section 001 Richard Sacks Tuesday 12:10pm-2:00pm 3pts. Prerequisites: Permission of the instructor This course will focus on the close-reading of poems composed in English which take as their contextual points of departure the mythic traditions of ancient Greece and Rome. The poems studied will come from a range of periods and nationalities, as well as a range of mythic contexts, thus allowing us to explore both the kinds of questions raised by classical mythic traditions and also the ways in which such questions can inform and challenge our assumptions about various English poetic traditions.

Greek Art & Architecture AHIS V3248 Section 001 Ioannis Mylonopoulos Monday and Wednesday 4:10pm-5:25pm 3pts. - Introduction to the art and architecture of the Greek world during the archaic, classical, and Hellenistic periods (11th - 1st centuries B.C.E.).

Intellectuals, Gods, Kings & Fishermen AHIS V3885 Section 001 Ioannis Mylonopoulos Monday 11:00am-12:50pm 3pts. - During the Hellenistic period (330-30 BCE), themes that were considered uninteresting, even inappropriate for the viewer of Classical and Late Classical sculpture became extremely attractive: old people, hard working peasants, old drunken prostitutes, fishermen in the big harbours, or persons ethnically different from the Greek ideals became the subject of the Hellenistic sculpture in the round that also produced images of serene divinities and dynamic members of the elite in an entirely Classical tradition. Besides Athens, new cultural and artistic centres arose: Alexandria in Egypt, Antiocheia and Pergamon in Asia Minor, or Rhodes. Despite its importance as the birthplace of all arts, Athens did not dominate anymore the artistic language, so that an unprecedented variety of styles characterises the sculptural production of the Hellenistic period. The seminar will study the sculpture of the Hellenistic period as an extremely imaginative and dynamic artistic expression without the Classical bias. The styles of the various Hellenistic artistic centres will be individually analysed based on representative works and then compared to each other and to the sculptural traditions of the Classical period, so that Hellenistic sculpture can be understood both as a continuation of the Classical and especially Late Classical sculpture and as an artistic and intellectual revolt against the ideals of the past.

Rome: A Preindustrial Metropolis HIST W4045 Section 001 Marco Maiuro Thursday 4:10pm-6:00pm 4pts. - Ancient Rome from the 1st century BCE to the beginning of the 5th Century AD had about one million inhabitants. This demographic density is an exceptional feature among all preindustrial societies, equalled by London only at the beginning of the nineteenth century. After a short theoretical introduction to the subject of urbanism in pre-industrial societies and in particular in the classical period, the seminar will focus on three issues: the demographic trend of the city, the grain and water supply and the actual organization of water and grain distribution, and the role of the imperial court and government in building activities, feeding the people and assuring basic administrative services. Special attention will be paid to quantitative aspects of the social and economic history of the city. A wide range of sources will be examined: literary and juridical texts, inscriptions, archaeological and topographic evidence.

Ancient Novel CLLT W3135 Section 001 Elizabeth Scharffenberger Monday and Wednesday 6:10pm - 7:25pm 3pts. - We study several of the extant novels that have survived from classical antiquity, such as Longus' "Daphnis and Chloe," Achilles Tatius' "Leucippe and Cleitophon," and Petronius' "Satyricon." We examine the narrative features of these ancient tales of romance, adventure, and survival, and we consider the relationship of novels to other genres that were popular in antiquity (e.g. epic poems, histories, travelogues), their ideological function(s), and their treatment of gender, ethnicity, and social status. We also explore the influence of novels on other important forms of narrative in antiquity, notably the Acts of the Apostles and the lives of Christian saints, and their impact on texts of subsequent eras -- both direct (e.g., Boccaccio's Decameron, Sidney's Arcadia, Richardson's Pamela, Swift's Gulliver's Travels) and indirect (Harlequin romances, the "Twilight" novels, and popular movies such as "Pirates of the Carribean").

World Responds to Greeks CLGM V3920 Section 001 Karen Van Dyck Tuesday 6:10pm-8pm 3pts - This course examines various literary, artistic, and cultural traditions that respond to some of the most recognizable Greek motifs in myth, theater, and politics, with the aim of understanding what these motifs might be offering to these traditions in specific social-historical contexts, as well as what these traditions bring to our conventional understanding of these motifs, how they re-conceptualize them and how they alter them. The overall impetus is framed by how conditions of modernity, postcoloniality, and globality fashion themselves by engaging certain persistent imaginaries of antiquity. Texts include various renditions of Antigone in African, Caribbean, Asian or Latin American traditions, poetry by Walcott, Cavafy, and Césaire, essays by Fanon, Soyinka, Senghor, and C.L.R. James.

The Making of Modern Greek Poetry GRKM V3306 Section 001 Evangelos Calotychos Monday 2:10pm - 4:00pm 3-4pts. Prerequisites: GRKM V1201 or the equivalent. - In this course, we read back and forth through Greek literary history from the 1980s to the 1930s, 1920s, 1880s and 1820s, mapping contemporary critical concerns and contemporary literary works onto earlier works, as well as examining how previous generations of writers influence contemporary writers. We will focus on questions of women's writing, gender and sexuality, as well as how translation conceals and reveals these questions. Texts include works by Anghelaki-Rooke, Cavafy, Dimoula, Elytes, Laina, Mastoraki, Ritsos, Sachtouris, Seferis, Sikelianos and Solomos. This method of reading back and forth not only highlights what is linguistically familiar about contemporary writing and more foreign about earlier writing, but makes questions of canon formation and literature as a national institution integral to the process of studying Modern Greek poetry. Students will create portfolios of their own translations of the poems we read and discuss them with poets and translators over the course of the semester. No knowledge of Greek is necessary, although an extra-credit tutorial will be offered for Greek speakers wishing to read the poetry in the original. Class discussion and texts will be in English. Works also available in Greek for those students wishing to read in Greek. Assignments may be completed in English or Greek.

Making the gods: Divine Images in Ancient Greece AHIS V6243 Section 001 Ioannis Mylonopoulos Wednesday 11am-12:50pm 3pts. There are a relatively large number of monographic studies on iconographic and iconological aspects of various ancient Greek divinities’ imagery, Greek divine images as a general both religious and artistic category, however, have never before been studied from an art historical perspective. In addition, books published so far with a more comprehensive approach on statues of Greek gods have a clearly exclusive historical or philological character. The course aims at filling this rather strange gap in scholarship and will be based on a monograph on the subject currently under preparation (to appear with Harvard University Press). Although specific case studies will be discussed en detail whenever necessary, ancient Greek divine images will be studied with a more comprehensive approach, which will certainly avoid a Darwinian model of development and evolution in the visual construction of the divine in ancient Greece, usually found in introductory books on Greek art. Greek divine images will be presented within both their own historical context (literary appreciation and criticism, philosophical rejection, political use and abuse of the divine image) and a more wide-ranging set of questions raised by current art historical, anthropological, and philosophical theories about the significance of the image in general and the religious image in particular.

The seminar will interpret these monuments as elements of a symbolic communication system that contributed in establishing the roles of the various historical actors—the emperor, the senate, the Roman people, local communities, professional groups, etc.—and will explore the consequences of this vision for our understanding of Roman state art.

Ancient Rome from the 1st century BCE to the beginning of the 5th Century AD had about one million inhabitants. This demographic density is an exceptional feature among all preindustrial societies, equalled by London only at the beginning of the nineteenth century. After a short theoretical introduction to the subject of urbanism in pre-industrial societies and in particular in the classical period, the seminar will focus on three issues: the demographic trend of the city, the grain and water supply and the actual organization of water and grain distribution, and the role of the imperial court and government in building activities, feeding the people and assuring basic administrative services. Special attention will be paid to quantitative aspects of the social and economic history of the city.

The Ancient State: Theories, Models, and Comparisons for Historians HIST G9008 Section 001 Walter Scheidel Wednesday 2:10pm-4:00pm 4 pts. This seminar introduces historians and students from cognate disciplines to a variety of recent approaches to the study of the early state. The seminar consists of three parts. During the first five weeks we develop an analytical framework for empirical engagement with the historical record from the ancient world. These opening sessions address fundamental questions: definitions of the state; preconditions of state formations and the emergence of the state; the dynamics of state formations, exemplified by conflict and managerial theories; and the nature of empires. The following six sessions are devoted to historical case studies, focusing on western Eurasia from the Sumerian to the Roman periods but complemented by comparative material from East Asia and Mesoamerica. These sessions challenge students to apply, assess and question the broad models developed in the first part of the seminar. In the final three sessions we consider generalizing theories of state formation, focusing on state failure and transformation and on complementary models of the main factors determining the fortunes of states.

Tuesday 7:10pm - 9pm. 4pts. - This course introduces students to key aspects of Modern Greek culture as well as to faculty at Columbia working on Greece in different departments.

Students study works by poets, novelists, filmmakers, literary critics, historians, anthropologists and architects; Columbia faculty and invited guests then discuss their own scholarship in these fields. Texts are available in both English and Greek. The course can be taken with a one-credit extra hour tutorial for advanced students reading materials in Greek.

The Politics of Poiein: Greek Poets and their Interlocutors. CLGM W4390 SECTION 001. Stathis Gourgouris. Tuesday 11am - 12:50pm. 3pts. - This course stages an imaginary dialogue between certain Greek poets, whose work spans the 20th century, and poets of the same era from other parts of the world, for whom Greek motifs are crucial to their poetic sensibility. These motifs may pertain to both ancient and modern figures of Hellenism, but even when the figures are recognizably ancient the assumption is that they extend themselves to an outmaneuverable modernity. Indeed, by staging this dialogue, the course will engage in interrogations of modernity and, moreover, the specific ways in which figures of modernity and figures of Hellenism are entwined. At the same time, we will pay close attention to different articulations of poi?sis, especially as they pertain to a certain politics. The literary historical sphere spans the range of early modernism to postmodernism and postcolonialism, as well as specific poetic-political sensibilities, whether aestheticist or Marxist, feminist or queer.
