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.

Read: American Bloomsbury: Louisa May Alcott, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Margaret Fuller, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Henry David Thoreau: Their Lives, Their Loves, Their Work , Susan Cheever (ISBN 9780743264624)

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 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.

While the status of Judaism as a minority religion leads many to think that conversion is mostly a one-way street out of the faith, there are numerous cases of communities choosing to become Jewish. Perhaps ironically, some of these communities find Judaism through Christianity. Many created a unique brand of practices along the way. This course will explore the paths of four such communities: the Subbotniks of Russia, the Italians of San Nicandro, the B'nei Moshe of Peru and the Lemba of Southern Africa. More

This course will explore the concept of existentialism as it formed into being in the early to mid-20th century in Europe right before and during WWII. We will discuss philosophers’ reactions to the growing threat of Nazi Germany and how these thinkers at the time (Sartre, Beauvoir, Camus, Merleau-Ponty, Heidegger) responded to the annexation of Europe and multiple countries’ actions against fascism. We will explore the concept of responsibility and personal investment in the common good, especially when more horrific situations affect us—whether that is war, fascism, political turmoil, or a literal plague. How do we respond (individually and collectively) to tumultuous moments, such as a pandemic, social injustice, and other future issues?
