2014-2015 Greek Courses
Intermediate/Advanced Greek: Topics in Greek Literature
Themes and texts for this course will depend on enrollment and student interest. Students will attend lectures in literature: How Stories Define Us: Greek Myths and the Invention of Democracy. In addition, students will meet individually (or in small groups) once or twice a week to discuss readings in Greek.
This course provides an intensive introduction to Ancient Greek grammar, syntax, and vocabulary, with the aim of reading authentic excerpts of Ancient Greek poetry and prose as soon as possible. Students will also read and discuss several dialogues of Plato in English. During the spring semester, while continuing to refine their grammar and reading skills, students will read extended selections of Plato’s Apology in the original Greek.
