Penn’s department of Classical Studies is a renowned community of scholars and students working on diverse areas of the Greco-Roman world, from language and literature to history to archaeology to reception studies. Each summer we offer a wide range of courses, ranging from intensive Latin and Greek to ancient Greek and Roman history, myth, and culture. Many of the courses are ideal for undergraduate and graduate students who wish to spend the summer accelerating their preparation for further study. Each of the intensive language courses covers the equivalent of one year’s coursework in six weeks, and the intermediate courses will fully prepare students for advanced courses. The other courses are suitable both for students new to the Greco-Roman world or are looking to extend their knowledge into new areas of specialization.

Classical Mythology

CLAR 242 Archaeology of Egypt (May 11-27)
This course is an introductory survey of the archaeology, art and architecture of ancient Egypt, ranging in time from the prehistoric cultures of the Nile Valley through the New Kingdom. While the course will examine famous features and characters of ancient Egypt it will also provide a wide-ranging review of the archaeology of this remarkable land as well as the method and theories used to understand ancient Egypt.  Attention will be placed on how major sites and artifacts contribute to our understanding of the Egyptian world-view and its visual expression.  Students will also have the opportunity to examine ancient Egyptian objects first-hand through in-class activities and visits to local museums.

CLAS 242 Sex and Gender in Antiquity (May 11-June 16)
The purpose of this course is to explore gender constructs, what it meant to be a woman or a man, in antiquity, as revealed in literary, historical and archaeological sources. Throughout the five-and-a-half week course we will analyze and discuss ancient attitudes and ideas about love, sexuality, normative and non-binary gender, and more. The primary readings will be from Homer, Euripides, Plato, Ovid, Petronius, and other ancient authors. Additional readings drawn from the field of gender studies will serve to highlight the primary texts’ issues and their relevance for our contemporary society.

CLAS 126 Medical Terminology (June 20-July 26)
Systematic study of the formation of scientific and medical terms from Greek and Latin roots, to build vocabulary and recognition.
Instructor: Andrew Ficklin | aficklin@live.unc.edu

CLAS 131 Classical Mythology (June 20-July 26)
The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the myths of the ancient Greeks and Romans, the stories about gods, goddesses, and heroes that were told and retold throughout antiquity. Reading and discussion will emphasize not only the stories themselves, but also their historical and cultural context. How were myths transmitted in ancient times? What roles did they play in Greco-Roman culture? What can we learn from them about the ways that ancient Greeks and Romans understood the world around them? In our explorations we will concentrate on literary texts, especially epic and tragedy, but will also examine visual representations of myths in painting and sculpture. Alongside daily class discussion, this course will include visits to the Ackland Art Museum, viewings of modern film adaptations of myths, and scavenger hunts for mythological symbolism on UNC's campus.
