Women in Ancient Greece
CCIV 110
Fall 2007 not offered
Crosslisting: FGSS 111

Many of the archetypes of the female in the literature and culture of the West are derived from the myths and literature of Ancient Greece: Helen of Troy, Clytemnestra, Antigone, and Medea, for example. In this course we will read some of the texts in which these figures and their associated myths appear, and we will consider how the category of gender affects our understanding and interpretation. No previous knowledge of the material is assumed.
