03/24/2017 to 05/26/2017

HUAS 48015 | Herodotus’s Histories, Books 1 & 2, Continued, Spring

Our yearlong exploration of the first two books of Herodotus'shistory-defining, genre-defying work moves from the risings and fallings of Croesus and Cyrus to the land of Egypt and the marvels of the pyramids and the Nile. Seemingly, an extended digression on the cusp of Cambyses’s disastrous foray into Egypt, we’ll attempt to place book two of Herodotus within the larger stated purpose of the work: “so that what happened from human involvement might not fade away because of time…”

No class April 7 and May 5.

03/25/2017 to 06/3/2017

BASC 70053 | William Faulkner and Flannery O’Connor- Two Southern “Mystics”

We will examine Faulkner’s Absalom, Absalom and Light in August against the background of several of O’Connor’s short stories: “Everything That Rises Must Converge,” “The Lame Shall Enter First,” “The Comforts of Home,” “Revelation,” and “Judgment Day.” We will focus on matters of style, concepts of reality and religion, the creation of “atmosphere,” and the myriad relations between conscious and unconscious behavior and motivation. We will also ask questions concerning the relationship between the “surreal” and the “mystical” in these two brilliant writers. Finally, we will consider what might be regarded as truly “Southern” in their respective views of fatality and humanity.

Basic Program Freud on the Human Condition
03/25/2017 to 06/3/2017

BASC 80123 | Freud on the Human Condition

Although Freud has been primarily known for his theories of individual psychology, Freud himself never saw his work in such narrow terms. Rather, Freud constantly strove to develop a comprehensive theory of the human condition by using his psychology to explain fundamental features of human evolution, history, and modern social life. This course will explore key elements of Freud’s worldview — which often equated children, neurotics, “primitives”, and proto-humans — through close reading and discussion of a number of works that put Freud’s psychological theories in a larger context. Texts include: An Autobiographical Study, An Outline of Psychoanalysis, Totem and Taboo, Moses and Monotheism, The Future of an Illusion, and Civilization and its Discontents.

Please read An Autobiographical Study before the first class.

Open Enrollment Course Apologies of/for Socrates
03/25/2017 to 06/17/2017

HUAS 48019 | Apologies of/for Socrates

A few years after an Athenian jury convicted Socrates in 399 BCE on the charges of corrupting the young and of impiety, people began to ask aloud about Socrates’s arrogance and incompetence at mounting his own defense. As a result, a cottage industry of sorts arose purporting to give accounts of Socrates’s trial. This course takes Plato’s Apology for Socrates as its main focus, but with reference to Xenophon’s Apology and Memorabilia, as well as excerpts from other works and authors. Rather than reading their trial accounts simply as history, we’ll consider the works of Plato and Xenophon – reading them in Greek - as an attempt to respond to the criticisms of Socrates made after his execution and to restore the reputation of their friend.

03/27/2017 to 06/12/2017

BASC 50063 | CANCELED: Steinbeck: Tortilla Flat, The Log from the Sea of Cortez and The Long Valley

John Steinbeck’s incarnating the life of the Salinas Valley, the particularities around Monterey, California and the Pacific thrillingly draws from geologic pre-history, the external and inner movements of people, the uses and abuses of those lands and waters, those people, their works, their Beings and Becomings. Tortilla Flat’s raucous, picaresque vignettes paint an almost religious saga of post-war paisanos fighting, drinking, loving, dying, surviving - chapter by piquant chapter. Famously, The Log crystallizes narrative from Steinbeck’s healing and passional marine study voyage with beloved biologist-friend Ed Ricketts, model for Doc of Cannery Row. The Long Valley’s short stories are Steinbeck’s garland, litany, hymn to his Salinas.

BASC 50013 | Ovid Metamorphoses

Ovid (Publius Ovidius Naso, 43 BC to AD 17 or 18) began his epic poem on the theme of changes about AD 2, and finished it in exile. The poem has pleased and informed Western readers and poets since its first appearance. Ovid’s retelling and modification of the myths of ancient Greece and Rome was read through the Middle Ages and the Renaissance as a collection of stories, and, from the 16th Century, began to be appreciated as a source of innovative poetic principles. It has been said that “The Metamorphoses is like no poem written before it, although virtually everything in it can be found elsewhere.” (This is the third quarter of a three-quarter sequence).

Basic Program Revisiting Downton Abbey – Seasons 5 and 6
03/27/2017 to 06/12/2017

BASC 70013 | Revisiting Downton Abbey – Seasons 5 and 6

Capturing the imagination of an era is not accidental. Downton Abbey is one of the most popular television series beloved by viewers who intuit connections between the late Edwardian society and our own. The late Edwardian period was a time of unprecedented social and cultural changes in music, literature, art, architecture, fashion, and inventiveness. The manifestations of innovation are wonderfully captured against a world that is resisting change that affects all levels of this society. The important question of how people reinvent themselves is at the heart of our exploration of why this series is so popular both in America and so many other countries. This three quarter sequence will examine both Fellowes’s scripts as well as a number of other references which the author of this work used from his own extensive understanding of this period. This is the third quarter of a yearlong course.
