Department of Classics
The Classics Project of the Center for the Liberal Arts wishes to serve both Latin teachers and those teachers of English, Social Studies, and Art who have a professional or personal interest in the classical world. We want all teachers to be able to teach in the most informed way possible the various elements of classical mythology, literature, art, and history already in their curricula. Our programs offer the basic historical and cultural information to orient the teachers and to give some in-depth information on topics or works treated in the school curricula, e.g., Sophocles’ Antigone, Euripides’ Medea, Homer’s Odyssey, and the principles of Athenian democracy. We also attempt to provide some stimulating new material, whether it be new works of literature or a comparison of ancient democracy to modern democracies.
