Athens was one of the great cities of antiquity.  As the place in which democracy, philosophy, and the theater were born, it is foundational for understanding much of the development of the western world. With its unusually rich surviving material and literary record, it forms an ideal setting in which to explore relationships of ancient to modern, landscape to built-scape, material to literary record amongst others.  This course, team-taught by professors at both Duke University and The American College of Greece-Deree, will use the Classical through Roman visible physical remains of Athens as a focus to explore the changing face of the city through in-class and cross-continent reading and debate, digital creation and on-site exploration.  Teamwork between students in Greece and the US will be a major component of the course. Students will learn to manage and present information with Omeka and Neatline.

NB: The course includes a mandatory, full-funded trip to Athens during Spring Break. The enrollment cap is therefore set to 10. Preference will be given to sophomores and juniors, and to those students interested in learning digital visualization tools.
