HIST 201 History of Ancient Greece

An investigation of the historical development of the city-states with their social, economic, and political institutions from 800-400 BCE. The course will also assess the Greeks' varied interactions with other peoples, their self-defining conflict with Persia, the rise of competing leagues, and the intellectual revolutions in classical Greece. An inter-disciplinary approach to understanding a world radically different from our own. Emphasis is placed on developing interpretations based on primary source evidence. [H, GM2]
