Using textual and archaeological primary resources, this short class examines the history of a small sliver of land in the Eastern Mediterranean whose role in world religion, culture, economics, and geopolitics appears quite disproportionate to its total acreage. From ancient texts and the ruins of Canaanite and other early civilizations through the layers of conquest by global forces of ancient Babylon, Persia, Greece and Rome to periods of exile and resettlement that spanned millennia, we will examine the ever-shifting cartography that includes terms like Judaea, Palestine, and Israel.

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.



Read: Acharnians, Birds, Clouds, Frogs, Lysistrata, Aristophanes. The version used will be Jeff Henderson's translation published by Hackett

This course will introduce readers to the major themes of The Decameron, set against the historical backdrop of the 1348 plague. Set in Florence, Italy during the Black Death, Giovanni Boccaccio’s one hundred novelle have received recent, widespread attention as readers the world over struggle to navigate the perils of the COVID 19 pandemic. As we will explore, it is not the pathos of Boccaccio’s plague that gives The Decameron its enduring and vital power. Rather, the stories reveal the passion and compassion of which we are capable when called upon to care about and for each other. More

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

In this course, we will read, discuss, and analyze the novel along with its influences and literary allusions. Read: The Secret History, Donna Tartt More

The son of Vienna’s most prominent music critic, Erich Korngold was a prodigy in line with Mozart and Mendelssohn. His precocious early works defied his age. Max Rheinhardt brought him to Hollywood to score his 1935 film of Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream. Endangered by the Anschluss on his return to Vienna, he was saved by a telegram from Jack Warner, inviting him to score the film Robin Hood. Korngold escaped with his family and spent the war years scoring 16 films, winning two Oscars. Although his work fell out of style after the war, his musical reputation was renewed beginning in the 1970’s, led by his son, record producer George Korngold. This course will survey his contributions to opera and vocal music. More
