Course Description:
Greece is known as the birthplace of Democracy and its legendary past is still with us today through the Olympics, the marathon, and even films like "300." But, contemporary Greece is also a vibrant country, one perched at the border between Europe and the Middle East. This course gives a close-up look at Greece's historical past and its engaging present through visits to sites such as Athens' Acropolis and Plaka, Ancient Olympia and the city of Thessaloniki, while at the same time we will emphasize the importance of rhetoric, memory, and democracy to Greek culture and Western Civilization.
