Course Description

Introduction to the complex systems of local, regional, and "international" sports and entertainment in the ancient world; exploration of the radically different ideas of the Greeks and Romans concerning these intersections of social performance and religious practice. Discussion of how inseparable sport was from the civic and religious life of the ancient world and how the spectacle of the competition/performance was a major element of public entertainment and daily life. Examination of sport and entertainment as a lens to discuss ancient conceptions of gender, status, the body, and the nature of what made a good citizen. Lower level of dual level course.
