Ancient Greek Tragedy: Euripides' Medea - text, context, and performance

(Maymester) This course attempts an innovative, holistic and interdisciplinary approach to ancient Greek literature by integrating classics, archaeology, and theatrical studies. The students will be initiated to the dramatic plot of Euripides' play through textual analysis (from translation), contextual synthesis of the particular historical/political circumstances and the archaeological/architectural setting of the play (ancient Greek theater, Dionysia festival), and ultimately through the unique experience of staging and performing (as actors or members of the chorus) parts of the play.
