HIS/AMS 351: Comparative American Character

Instructor: Dr. Bakewell

This course will study warfare as it was conducted and imagined in the Greek and Roman worlds. Using both primary evidence and secondary scholarship, we will examine practical manuals of tactics and siege warfare, as well as literary works from a variety of genres. We will also consider material evidence, such as visual and monumental depictions of warfare, and their role in producing cultural meaning.
