LC 308 - Learning Community: Power & Propaganda in the Ancient World

Four Credits
Offered Periodically

By examining public art-palaces, temples and churches- and primary texts from ancient cultures such as Egypt, Greece, Mesopotamia and Israel, this course explores how people in power claim the right to rule over others. Critical methodologies include communication theory, post-colonial theory and the complicated political discourse of democracies. Students will connect ancient and modern political language by critiquing public monuments in the Boston area while also considering the current conversation about removing public monuments in the U.S.
