ARTH 18.01 Ancient Art and Myth

Rich and suspenseful, ancient mythology holds a central place in our imagination.  One thinks of myths as a series of definitive plots, but art reveals all sorts of interpretive disagreements.  Ancient art did not just illustrate mythology but participated in its construction.  This course considers the notions of myth and visual story-telling from a theoretical perspective; briefly explores  mythological narrative in the ancient Near East and Egypt; and focuses on myth-making in Greece and Rome.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
