Section Description

This online course introduces students to some of the major characters and episodes of Greek and Roman myth (gods, goddesses, heroes and heroines) and explores various reworkings and interpretations of classical mythology in literature, art, philosophy, music, film and television to the present day. Primary texts include Ovid’s Metamorphoses, Aeschylus’ Oresteia, Euripides’ Bacchae, Sophocles’ Oedipus Rex, and Hesiod’s Theogony. Works of reception are wide-ranging: e.g., episodes of South Park, selections from Nietzsche and Freud, films by Pasolini and the Coen brothers, the music of Beethoven and the Blind Boys of Alabama, and artwork by Caravaggio, Titian, Botticelli, Salvador Dali, and Cindy Sherman.

Section Expectation

Class sessions will be fully participatory and online-discussion-based, moderated by the professor. There will be daily short-answer/ID quizzes based on the assigned readings (this also forms part of students’ participation grade); 2 two- to three-page “response” papers (I will explain) and 2 short assignments; 1 final exam (ID and short-answer). Evaluation: Quizzes: 30%; response papers and assignments: 40%; final: 30%
