FS 006 PZ -The Trojan War*

Institution: Pitzer

Description: What do Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, James Joyce, Brad Pitt, several computer viruses, and countless sports teams have in common? They were all inspired by the Trojan War. From Heinrich Schliemann to Homer Simpson, the story of the Trojan War has been told and retold, used and abused since long before it was first written down by the man we call (the other) Homer and up until today. In this course we will explore the Trojan War through archaeology, Greek and Roman art and literature as well as interpretations from around the world and into the modern era.  [M. Berenfeld, Classics]
