On completion of the module students should:
1. possess a detailed knowledge of the history of the Classical Greek world, c. 480-323BC.
2. be able to synthesise, analyse, and critically evaluate ancient and modern sources used to study this period.
3. demonstrate their capacity to assemble, review, and evaluate ancient and modern evidence and communicate these ideas verbally (e.g. in class discussion) or through writing (e.g. in their portfolio and exam).
4. be able to reflect on their engagement with the course content and identify their individual learning style and supports needed to continue to learn more independently
5. manage their time in order to facilitate independent study.
In Autumn 2023 the module will explore key sources and themes for the study of Ancient Greek history.
These include topics such as:
The formation of ancient Greek identities, e.g. mythical origins, travel and mobility, religion, language, gender, and social status.
Ancient empires, conquests, and conflicts, e.g. the Persian Wars, the Peloponnesian Wars, the Sacred Wars, and the emergence of Athens, Macedonia, Persia, Sparta, and Thebes as hegemonic powers in the Mediterranean World.
The roles that muted groups, e.g. women and slaves, play.
Ancient political thought, e.g. discussions of monarchy, aristocracy, oligarchy, democracy, and ideas about freedom, etc.
The role of material culture and archaeology in the study of ancient Greece, e.g. remains of ancient buildings, clay tablets, coins, inscriptions, papyri, and pottery.
