HUM 2220 (Hoaglen): Classical Greek Culture and Philosophy

Sky with Acropolis statues, text: Classical Greek Culture

Overview and Directions

We've finally reached the Classical Period and Golden Age of Greece.  It is important to practice the same habits as in previous modules: read the articles, watch the documentaries, and let the slides on Canvas guide you as you read and learn about Classical Greece.  Remember to learn the vocabulary listed on Canvas as well.  It is important to think about both the culture and history of Greece in conjunction with the artifacts: I want students to mainly focus on Greek statues of humans, architecture, and philosophy.  Students may also draw on knowledge from Modules 1 and 2, as culture and history does build and evolve.
