GREK 1416 Myths of Greece & Rome (4 Credits)

Introduction to the goddesses and gods, heroes and heroines, and not a few monstrosities from popular tradition, literature, and visual arts of the ancient Greeks and Romans. Activities include imaginative and creative assignments. No prerequisite. This course counts toward the Analytical Inquiry: Society and Culture requirement.

GREK 1816 Ancient Tragedy Ever Modern (4 Credits)

Three great Athenian tragedians of the 400s BCE--Aeschylus, Sophocles, and certainly most modernist of all Euripides--offer us of the 2000s CE much to experience, much to ponder, much that still challenges or provokes us. We experience their democratic Athenian community and its political and social, its religious and philosophic innovations as actualized in tragedy. We read and analyze, enact (in parts) and even imitate both widely known "world classics" Antigone and Oedipus Tyrannus , Medea and Bacchae with fresh approaches proper to our turbulent times, but also less familiar, often distressing "problem" plays that include Euripides' Andromache, Hecuba, and Heracles. This course bears the Analytical Inquiry: Society and Culture attribute in Common Curriculum.

GREK 1916 Comedy Old and New (4 Credits)

Reading and discussion of and experiment with comedies from ancient Rome and even more ancient Greece. We begin, however, with modernizations in American-musical form, and end with our own product in 21st-century emulation. Students' participation, even broad clownish histrionics, required. Students must also be eager to laugh--knowlingly and intelligently, of course.
