Ancient Greece and Rome, whose study makes up the field of Classics, have been highly influential for subsequent historical thought. This is no less true than in the topic of race and racism. But, the ancient Mediterranean world was a complex, diverse environment, where forms of racial or group identities were not static, but changing, over time. This class will engage you not only in how we look at ancient views on race, ethnicity, inclusion, exclusion, prejudice, and humanity, but also in how the modern age continues to see the ancient Greek and Roman past used in service of arguments of inclusion and exclusion.
