Special Topics in Classics:

The rediscovery of Greek and Roman antiquity in early modern Europe (1400-1600)' The seminar will explore key aspects and moments of the process of transformation in Western culture often defined as Humanism or Renaissance. The spotlight will be on the appropriation, remaking, rediscovery of Greek and Roman antiquities, and will include discussions of science, geography, art, literature, manuscripts and books, sexuality, archaeology, and social life, all from the point of view of the 'return' of Classical influences. The course load includes weekly readings of secondary literature or primary sources (all in English), with short reports by students in class, active participation and discussion, and one paper on a topic of interest to the student.

Topics vary by semester. For additional information see the departmental website: http://classics.as.nyu.edu/page/home.html
