AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Presentation

Advanced knowledge of Greek literature is extremely useful for future archaeologists and professionals of the domain of Cultural Heritage. Some of them will actually work in Greece: therefore they have to learn the differences between the Greek language taught in Italy and the Greek language spoken nowadays in Greece. Those who will work outside Greek-speaking countries must know the importance of Hellenistic Greek (as an international language), too, as they will have to deal with Greek archaeology nonetheless.

Learning Outcomes

Students will further deepen the knowledge acquired during their undergraduate studies; they will acquire a fairly solid knowledge of ancient Greek literature and its historical evolution (from origins to the 6th century A.D). The monographic part of the course will cover one or more themes (different themes in two different modules) and it will study them thoroughly by using them as examples; the course is designed for students who have a basic knowledge of ancient Greek literature. In addition to the Greek texts read during their undergraduate studies, students will read new texts, in order to be able to estimate the specific contribution of the major authors, and to develop their ability to contextualize and interpret a text in a philologically accurate and literary sensitive way.
