While American literary history didn't begin in the 1850s in Concord, Massachusetts, it certainly blossomed there. This small town an hour west of Boston was home to a band of writers whose works still resonate with modern readers. In this course, we will read Susan Cheever's American Bloomsbury and examine the way the writers in this group challenged, influenced, and ultimately bettered one another. We'll also read a selection of each author's work in full.

The Merchant of Venice, Oliver Twist and Trilby are English literary classics, which have stood the test of time. Each work’s lasting relevance is due, in large part, to the influence of its leading Jewish character. In fact, the characters have become so synonymous with their Jewishness, that their names are part of modern antiSemitic vernacular. In this class, we will study the portrayal of these characters – Shylock, Fagin and Svengali – while examining how and why numerous anti-Semitic tropes thrive and endure. More

This talk discusses the branch of archaeology known as “intensive survey,” in which teams of archaeologists systematically walk across a landscape, collecting artifacts and recording features in order to glean a holistic and diachronic picture of a region. Examples are drawn from the speaker’s fieldwork in Greece—around the Panhellenic sanctuary of Zeus at Nemea, and in the Mazi Plain, on the northern reaches of Athens’ territory—during which he has engaged in a variety of digital methods for studying and representing past landscapes.

In this course, we will read and discuss five plays by Aristophanes, the earliest comic playwright whose works survive in European literature. Aristophanes was a native Athenian who wrote and staged his plays during the time usually seen as the Golden Age of Greek civilization. Yet, in this period the fortunes of Athens changed dramatically. Athens went from a position of pride and power in the mid-fifth century to suffering ignominious defeat at the hands of the Spartans, barely surviving internal political upheavals by the end of the century. Throughout this period Aristophanes wrote comedies that reflect and comment on people, places, and politics in Athens and the Mediterranean.

This course will look at the life of former Vice President Spiro Agnew through the eyes of Rachel Maddow. Maddow’s book follows Agnew’s career first, as Governor of Maryland; then as Richard Nixon’s Vice President; and finally, his fall from power. We will review the legal issues he encountered, the prosecution case against him, his resignation from office, and his life following that event. We will also look at the case of United States v Nixon, which was happening simultaneously, diverting national attention away from Agnew and onto Watergate.

This course focuses on major developments already impacting our lives and adaptations that will be needed to address them. These developments include the threat of continuing pandemics, the ever-growing digitalization of our world, increasing racial and ethnic diversity in historically white countries, growing economic inequality and job displacement, political polarization, rising nationalism and right-wing extremism, economic competition between the U.S. and China, and the possibility of a bi-polar economic world. Each class will focus on a discussion of the challenges posed in the text. Supplementary articles and other informational materials will be provided.

Recent years have seen increasing interest in the histories of museum collections of archaeological material in the United States. Both the formation of these collections and the provenance (or modern ownership histories) of individual objects have drawn attention, from scholars and the public alike. While some American museums have undertaken Nazi-era provenance research, similar investigations of ancient art collections are a more recent development. In this lecture Powers will discuss the process of exploring the provenance of the San Antonio Museum of Art’s ancient Mediterranean collection and share recent results of this ongoing project. More

Abydos is one of the most important cemetery sites in Egypt, as the burial site of the first kings of state-level Egypt, the site of multiple cemeteries in near constant use for 3500 years, and as a major cult center to Osiris. During the period of Macedonian Ptolemaic rule, indigenous Egyptians and Greek-speaking groups were intensely interested in the site. Research over the past 20 years, including the excavation of a large priest’s tomb by the Abydos Middle Cemetery project, have begun to shed light on the development of Ptolemaic Abydos’ funerary and ritual landscape.

We are experiencing a major crisis and conflict in our country’s political life with highly polarized political parties and voters. However, the country has experienced this in the past and this course will discuss those conflicts and how they were resolved. These conflicts include the battle over the approval of the Constitution the long political struggle over the future of slavery reconstruction, Jim Crow and the rise and fall of the Ku Klux Klan the Gilded Age and its growing economic disparities (similar to our own era) and the response of the progressive movement FDR’s struggles with the Republican party and the Supreme Court in enacting the New Deal during the depression the black list and the rise and fall of McCarthyism and the battle over civil rights legislation in the 1960s.

Three Aegean cities dominated much of the cultural development of Europe during the Bronze Age: Knossos in Crete, Mycenae in Greece, and Troy in Asia Minor. What were their cultures and lifestyles like? How did they interact and trade? What do the ancient Greek myths, legends, and Homeric epics reveal about the history of these locations and their peoples? Who were the archaeologists who competed to discover, unearth and interpret these sites and their contents –and who twisted ethics and science in doing so? And how has the knowledge gleaned from these locales inspired and helped shape subsequent thought, including that of modern day psychology? Lecture and discussion will be supplemented by Powerpoint slides to provide visual and contextual enhancement.
