This course covers the history of the Greek speaking peoples from the origins of Greek civilization during the Bronze Age to the dispersion of Greek culture during the Hellenistic era through the conquests of Alexander the Great. The topics emphasize the political, social, cultural, and economic institutions and values that Hellas created to revolutionize Ancient Mediterranean history. Students gain an introduction to the history of Greek civilization and a deeper understanding of the nature of democracy, and the relationships among politics, art, literature, and the ideals of civic virtue.
