CLAS 363 - Race and Classics

In CLASSICS 363 we will build a community of inquiry examining the intersections of race and Classics. Readings will include primary and secondary sources that will help us explore topics such as (but not limited to) cross-cultural interactions in Mediterranean antiquity, the social construction of race and ethnicity in antiquity and modernity, the influence of race (including constructions of whiteness) and racism on the development of the discipline of Classics in modern Europe and North America, and how the ancient Greeks and Romans can help us think about diversity and the concept of Western Civilization.
