CLAS 325 Negotiating Identity in the Ancient World
Content: Ethnicity is an increasingly contested topic in the study of the ancient Mediterranean world. Once thought to be a settled matter, the question of whether the ancients even conceived of themselves in terms of ethnic categories is being examined afresh. How we answer that question has bearing not only on our understanding of antiquity, but can also speak to how we think about ourselves and our neighbors in an increasingly complex and pluralistic world. This course takes up the debate about negotiating identity in the ancient world and reflects on what that debate can teach us about how we negotiate identity today.
