ClSt 395 Iowa State University 2001



ClSt 395 consists of supervised on-site instruction in the archaeology, monuments, and art of Greece from the Bronze Age through the Ottoman period by means of lectures, student presentations, discussion, and readings from ancient and modern sources (course pack); attention will be given to the culture of modern Greece. You will be required to give two oral presentations/reports on-site: one on a particular site, monument, political or religious institution, aspect of daily life, etc.; one on an object or class of objects in a museum and their cultural significance (the topics will be determined according to your interests and the availability of resources in English). Those students registering for 1 credit of Cl St 490 will present a third report. These reports must be fully prepared using the resources of Parks Library, before our departure for Greece. Reading assignments must be completed before the day for which they are listed. Please read syllabus information in advance of each day. Reading assignments, maps/plans to bring, our eating schedule, and indications of special clothing requirements are listed in the syllabus. Class participation includes the timely completion of assigned readings, the willingness and ability to respond in our class situations and contribute to discussion, attentiveness during lectures by the instructor and reports by your classmates, and peer evaluations of reports.
