HIST 2202 Greeks and Barbarians (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

In "Greeks and Barbarians," we'll use a combination of written sources, archaeological evidence, and even visual art to investigate the fascinating history of relationships and conflicts between Greeks, Persians, Egyptians, Carthaginians, and more. We'll read a variety of literature in English, such as the histories of Herodotus and Xenophon, the tragedies of Aeschylus and Euripides, and more, to help us figure out what Greeks really thought about barbarians - and about themselves.
