INT 594 AB: Ancient Borderlands

INT 594 AB: Ancient Borderlands
Instructor: TBA
Times and Location: TBA
1-4 credits
This course is affiliated with the Ancient Borderlands Research Focus Group. The Ancient Borderlands Research Focus Group unites UCSB faculty and graduate students with common research interests in the history of Mediterranean antiquity, broadly conceived. We are investigating the process by which groups define, create and maintain their identities over time. The creation of boundaries, among ethnic, political, or religious groups, is a dynamic activity that can be reflected, not only by changes in material culture, but also in the rhetorical strategies adopted by ancient authors and the political tactics pursued by those seeking power. As members of several departments, including Classics, History, Religious Studies, and Anthropology, we are also interested in challenging the disciplinary boundaries between us, believing that we have much to learn from one another.
