Myth and Ideology: Ancient Greece in the Modern Imagination
May 31 - June 15 , 2014
Examine the moden fascination with ancient Greek myth, culture, and history in Summer 2014. Participants will explore the ways in which the glorified past of Greece has been reflected or appropriated in the artistic and intellectual productions of European and American modernisms. Through visits to historical sites, museums, and archaeological ruins, students will have the opportunity to consider ethical, religious, and political issues that are identified with ancient sites in Greece and how these symbolic spaces resonate in Western philhellenism as it appears in literature, art, and architecture.
