Ancient History

Ancient Greece

The Greeks enjoy a special place in the construction of western culture and identity, and yet many of us have only the vaguest notion of what their culture was like. A few Greek myths at bedtime when we are kids, maybe a Greek tragedy like Sophokles’ Oidipous when we are at school: these are often the only contact we have with the world of the ancient Mediterranean. The story of the Greeks, however, deserves a wider audience, because so much of what we esteem in our own culture derives from them: democracy, epic poetry, lyric poetry, tragedy, history writing, philosophy, aesthetic taste, all of these and many other features of cultural life enter the West from Greece. The oracle of Apollo at Delphi had inscribed over the temple, “Know Thyself.” For us, that also means knowing the Greeks. We will cover the period from the Late Bronze Age, c. 1500 BC, down to the time of Philip of Macedon, c. 350 BC, concentrating on the two hundred year interval from 600-400 BC.

Then the class studies the way in which the colonial culture of the Americas developed in the early modern period through an analysis of works in various media, including codices, painting, featherwork, sculpture, architecture and print. Historical, political and religious contexts will be explored in relationship to art production. Some themes for the course include hybridity, cross-cultural interaction, conversion, and propaganda.

Communication and Popular Culture

Popular culture has been alternately dismissed as mere trivia and condemned as propaganda, a tool of mass deception. This course introduces students to some of the most important critiques of culture since the 1930s and to different kinds of research that can help us understand popular culture and its effects. Students will investigate how different cultural forms communicate ideas about the world. Overarching questions for the course include: How do various popular culture forms represent social life? Why do we consume popular culture in the ways that we do? How can we look at popular culture to understand the world better, including our place in the world? To answer these questions, we will explore a range of media and genres, including television, film, advertising, music, books, magazines, and the Internet. The course develops critical reading skills that can be applied to both scholarly and popular texts.

Creative Writing: The Boundaries of Form in Fiction and Poetry

This workshop-style course will serve as an introduction to writing short fiction and poetry, with special attention paid to the ways writers can blur the lines between the two genres. Students will craft their own original pieces in this community-based classroom, where we will read and comment on each other’s work as well as on outside readings and the work of visiting writers. We will focus first on some of the main strategies used in fiction, such as characterization, dialogue, imagery, and language, before moving on to the forms of poetry, including sound, rhythm, syntax, and repetition. In addition to regular weekly workshops of student work, we will be using in-class exercises and experiments to push the boundaries of our own writing, exploring such hybrid forms as the prose poem and sudden fiction that question the lines we draw between verse and prose. Course requirements include thoughtful and committed class participation, regular writing assignments, and a final portfolio of fiction and poetry.

Study of an Author: Shakespeare

Environmental Studies

Literary Representations of Nature and Society

In order to construct successful environmental policies, understanding our culture’s attitudes about the natural world is as important as mastering basic science. In fact it is fair to say that environmental policy is formed at the intersection of culture and science. This course will use literary works as windows into the way western culture has viewed nature and its relation to society. We will analyze a wide variety of texts, from ancient to modern, and although we will follow a kind of chronological order, we will not be tracing a cultural evolution in understanding the environment. Instead we will uncover ideas about the natural world that are at once diverse, contradictory and persistent. Throughout the western tradition while some works make claims for mankind’s mastery of nature, for rights of dominion and rational control, others paint a far less sanguine picture. Naturally, central to our study will be stories of creation and paradise, ideal visions viewed from the perspective of loss. However, not every author sees this loss in the same light. Finally, we will conclude the course by briefly examining two non-western texts, Native American and ancient Chinese, to provide additional perspective on our own cultural assumptions.
TTH 5.30-8.10

Japanese Empire

This course examines the history of Japanese empire, the only non-western empire in modern history. In its heyday, it ruled over a territory spanning from Seoul to Taipei, from Sakhalin to Micronesia, occupying huge areas in both Asia and the Pacific. Its imperial expansion, colonial governance, wars, and postwar legacy not only transformed the political topography of the Asia-Pacific in the 20th century, but also shaped the present societies and international relations of the East Asian countries in substantially ways.
The class puts Japanese empire into the larger context of East Asian history, and discusses a series of key themes, such as colonialism, racism, wars, nationalism, and memory. It seeks to provide students both a general framework to understand the history of modern East Asia (China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan in particular) and an analytical tool to think about empires.
Students will read both historical works and primary sources, such as novels, memoirs and comics, and a few historical films will be shown, too. Class requirement includes active discussion, short assignments and a final paper, through which students will learn and practice skills of critical reading, analyzing and historical writing.
TTH 10.00-1.10 pm

Special attention will be paid to policy research organizations (e.g., think tanks, government research, and policy planning units) that generate and disseminate policy research, analyses, and recommendations. A selection of enduring and emerging global policy issues will be examined to demonstrate how policy issues take shape and are addressed by governments and intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations. Course will feature prominent policymakers from around the world who will comment on selected global policy issues and debates.
