Classics Beyond Whiteness
CLST 249
Spring 2022
Section: 01  

This course offers a vision of "classics" that decenters the white, elite, and masculine in favor of a more egalitarian approach to the discipline. Students will interrogate misconceptions that ancient Greeks and Romans were white, race and ethnicity in Graeco-Roman societies, the role of classics in modern racial politics, the name of "classics" itself, and non-white approaches to classics. This course considers race as social construct; white supremacy, fragility, and privilege; and critical-race theoretical study of ancient cultures. For CLST Major requirements and for Classics/CCIV Major requirements, this course falls under the History, Politics, and Social Justice track
