ART 252 Art and Myth in the Ancient World

3 hours

This course uses mythology and art to offer an introduction to the history of various ancient cultures, which may include Greece, Rome, the Ancient Near East, and Egypt, as well as other ancient worlds. Students will learn about ancient myth in its historical context to understand that images and tales that might seem like children’s bedtime stories were actually powerful forces that communicated the cultural values that shaped the history of how people lived and died: how they fell in love, judged criminals, conducted wars, constructed their racial and ethnic ideas, and thought about the origin and end of the world.
