CLS 395-01 - Advanced Special Topic: Ancient Greek Sculpture: Style, Context, and Ownership
4 credits (Spring)
Cross-listed as: ARH 395-01 . An interdisciplinary course exploring classical Greek sculpture: its ancient context, style, and function; its ownership in modern times and its place in museum culture. Students will engage in stylistic analysis of architectural marbles from the temple of Zeus at Olympia, the Parthenon in Athens, and the temple of Apollo at Bassae. The class will travel to London and Greece over spring break, conduct a public campus debate regarding ownership of antiquities, and write research papers. Students will be required to pay a $400 participation fee (most other required travel expenses will be covered). This fee will be added to the student tuition bill and is due by the first day of classes. If payment of this fee causes you financial concern, please contact Gretchen Zimmermann in the Financial Aid Office to discuss loan options to cover this additional cost for attendance.
Students must also submit an application through https://travel.global.grinnell.edu/index.cfm?FuseAction=Programs.ViewProgram&Program_ID=37563. An interview may also be required.
