WGS 345 • Gender/Sexuality In Anc Novel
MWF 1200pm-100pm MEZ B0.302
(also listed as
C C 348 )
The goal of this course is to introduce students to the major works of prose fiction from Greco-Roman antiquity, and to relate those works to the intellectual, cultural, and social currents of Late Antiquity. The works examined will include Greek romances, Roman comic novels, ancient science fiction, and early Judeo-Christian fictional narratives. We shall examine both their relationship to more canonical works of classical literature and their influence in later Western literary and artistic traditions. Gender and Sexuality will be focal points of discussion, since these works often provide valuable evidence concerning ancient sexual attitudes and gender roles.
Since this is designated as a Writing Flag class, students will be assigned frequent papers and receive practice in improving their expository and argumentative skills.
The course grade will be determined by four short papers (3-4 pages) on assigned topics (10% each), a longer final paper (6-8 pages) on a topic of each student's choice (25%), a short oral report presented to the class (10%), and participation in class discussion (25%). Regular attendance is mandatory, and will be calculated as part of the class discussion grade.
