INDS 224 The Cultures and Landscapes of Greece: Perspectives of Writer, Ancient and Modern

Traveling around Greece to visit museums and important historical and archeological sites, students will see firsthand the diversity of the country's topography and have the opportunity to study artifacts that give us glimpses into Greece's distant and more modern past. This "field experience" will enhance students' ability to cast a critical eye on the ways writers of imaginative literature have represented institutions and customs, values and priorities of Greeks living in particular locales at particular historical moments, and will help foreground ways in which the natural environment of Greece has both been shaped by and helped to shape the country's ever-changing cultures.
