Learning Objectives

The teaching contributes to supplying the basic skills for Greek history through the reading of Greek and Latin historiographic sources, with view to future employment in the field of publishing, archiving in institutions and enterprises, advertising/business communications or editorial work. Not to mention further study in the field of the humanities.

Program

Basic module based mainly on analysis of a series of passages from Greek authors. Outstanding moments of diachronic development of Greek history will be examined, with special attention to aspects of the political-ideological debate in Athens between the 5th and 4th century BC. We shall also analyse the figures of women characterized by a not purely formal proximity to power and the object of loss of status in the tradition (and in modern critical reflection), such as Arete, Damareta, Elpinice, Aspasia, the family women of the Spartan reformer kings of the 3rd century BC, and others.
