ANCS 350H Topics in Ancient Studies The Hero and The              3 credits
          Quest                                             

(PermReq) Grade  Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  This  seminar
          will  consider  the hero and  the quest as
          literary  and  historical  archetypes.  We
          shall   examine   mythic,  religious,  and
          secular  quests from ancient times through
          the modern. We shall evolve definitions of
          the   hero  as  those  definitions  remain
          constant   in  some  ways  and  change  in
          others.  Readings will include the Book of
          Job,   Renault's   The   King   Must  Die,
          Hamilton's  Mythology, Campbell's The Hero
          with  a Thousand Faces, Sophocles' Oedipus
          Rex  and  Antigone,  Shakespeare's Hamlet,
          McMurtry's  Lonesome  Dove,  and Malamud's
          The  Natural. Permission required from the
          Honors College. Also listed as HONR 300B.

ANCS 351H Topics in Ancient Studies When Worlds                   3 credits
          Collide                                           

(PermReq) Grade  Method:  REG/P-F/AUD  This  seminar
          focuses   on   the   paradox   that   some
          revolutionaries  have  been  actively  and
          deeply  engaged with the past. In the late
          eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries,
          America,  France,  Egypt,  and  Greece all
          experienced   revolutions  that  marked  a
          fundamental  break with their recent past.
          Individuals such as Thomas Jeffererson and
          Napoleon  Buonaparte played major roles in
          those  political upheavals,  but were also
          fascinated  with  the  past.  At  the same
          time,    in   England   both   traditional
          education  and  Romantic  poetry  inspired
          young  men to study  the ancient world and
          to    fight   in   the   Greek   War   for
          Independence.   We   will   explore   this
          exploration  of  the past  that took place
          during  an age of revolution. Our approach
          will  be interdisciplinary;  our goal will
          be  to learn about pioneers in rediscovery
          who   lived  in  an  age  that  saw  great
          progress both in the humanities and in the
          sciences.  Permission  required  from  the
          Honors College. Also listed as HONR 300C.
