On successful completion of the module students should be able to:
* synthesise information from a range of ancient and modern sources concerning Greek and Roman cultural identity;
* demonstrate an awareness of periodisation for Classical antiquity and how this relates to interactions with non Greek or Roman populations;
* analyse ancient evidence, place it in its context, and critically assess it;
* critically engage with modern scholarship and representations of ancient civilisations in popular culture, be able to contextualise them and critically reflect on them;
* apply this knowledge to submit written work that is coherently argued, backed up by evidence, well-presented, and documented in an academic format appropriate to the discipline
* apply this knowledge to group discussions in online fora, tutorials, and, where relevant, lectures.
* demonstrate awareness and understanding of diverse academic viewpoints on the interpretation and evaluation of Greek and Roman cultural identities.
* demonstrate awareness and understanding of diverse academic viewpoints on the interpretation and evaluation of non-Greek and non-Roman cultural identities.
In 2022 the module will explore Greek and Roman engagement with ancient Persia from the late Archaic/early Classical period until the early Roman Empire, and with Egypt from the Late Bronze Age to the early Roman Empire.
