Humanistic Perspectives on History and Society: Rupturing Tradition: Ancient Past, Contemporary PraxisCourse Cancelled

Brooke A. Holmes, Dan-El Padilla Peralta, Chiara Teresa Ricciardone, Micah Moran White

Back to "Fall 2020" courses

This course brings together different forms of disciplinary knowledge in the humanities and social sciences with the intellectual and practical resources of activism in order to reconceptualize the study of classical antiquity both within the university and outside its gates. We move back and forth between exploring the contributions that ancient Greco-Roman texts might make to contemporary social and political problems and examining the disciplinary history of academic Classics as a site for critical reimagination. This course is a collaboration with the Activist Graduate School, an online school by, and for, experienced activists.
