CL201:
The Greeks

How did ancient Greeks go to war, hold a festival, build a city, define their culture? In this course we’ll use a combination of archaeological, literary and art historical materials to explore the world of the people who spoke Greek, knew Zeus, and sailed from one end of the Mediterranean to the other. Our geographical range will reach from the coasts of modern Turkey to Greek cities in Sicily; our chronological span begins with the war at Troy and ends with the world created by Alexander the Great. Grades will be based on a combination of attendance, writing assignments, quizzes and midterms. If you have questions regarding this course please email the professor, Dr. Sandra Blakely, at sblakel@emory.edu

CL 329:  Digital Heroes: Extended Reality for the Ancient Mediterranean

Digital technologies, from network analysis to 3D reconstructions, archaeogaming to computer aided analysis of Greek and Latin, are transforming our abilities to understand the ancient Mediterranean world. That world was full of the gods and heroes who still shape our cultural imagination – Odysseus and his journey, Trojan heroes, the Argonauts and the first ship that turned water into a pathway instead of an obstacle.  This course explores the digital means for exploring and understanding that world. Students will be introduced to spatial analysis with ArcGIS, network analysis with Gephi, and modeling skills using 3DS max, and apply these skills to data sets drawn from the ancient Greek world. Finished models may be included in the online interactive game, Sailing with the Gods.  If you have questions regarding this course please email the professor, Dr. Sandra Blakely, at sblakel@emory.edu
