|Subject Overview:|| |
This intensive subject examines ancient Greek and Roman societies and cities in Greece, Turkey* and Italy. We will be based in: Athens, with day trips to Delphi and the Sounion peninsular; Hellenistic sites on the west coast of Turkey; and Rome, with day trips to Ostia and Pompeii. Visits to sites and museums will be based around issues that contribute to a concept of the physical, economic, political and cultural evolution of ancient cities, and social life in these cities. Students should develop a familiarity with themes such as the origins of cities; the city as a physical site; the city as seat of rank, authority and power; the economy and the marketplace; religion and myth; the individual in society; citizenship, the family, the individual and the state; work, sport, leisure and entertainment; and gender and sexuality. * Subject to approval by Department of Foreign Affairs & Trade, and the University of Melbourne
|Assessment:||Three 1000-word site reports written while on tour 30%, a reflective essay of 1500 words 20% (due at the end of February) and a research essay of 3500 words 50% (due at the end of March).|
