This course is a survey of some of the most important and engaging work being done by American women in the literary genre that Lorde calls a “vital necessity of our existence.” The selected texts – by Victoria Chang, Franny Choi, Natalie Diaz, Donika Kelly, Patricia Lockwood, and Claudia Rankine – touch on such broad-ranging themes as grief, technology, genocidal violence, mythology, rape culture, and police brutality. They show how poets use form, scheme, language, voice, and sound to create works of art that not only thrill, but also awaken and enlighten us. More

A two-state solution that separates a Jewish and Palestinian state is growing ever more unlikely. Equality, either in one federal state or in a confederation that allows free movement between two, offers a better way. Embracing that vision requires recognizing that equality is the best path to peace and that Zionism can be realized in a Jewish home, not a Jewish state. Join Peter Beinart for this important conversation, regardless of where you fall ideologically or politically. More

Mythology served as the underpinning for many aspects of ancient Egyptian culture. Mummies, pyramids, the afterlife, pharaohs - all of these are rooted in myths that developed and evolved over 4,000 years. This course will delve into some of the themes presented in these myths - creation (of the world and of humans), the pantheon of gods and goddesses, the human experience - and explore how they were experienced and represented by the ancient Egyptians.

Trajan's Column is best known for its sculpted spiral frieze depicting Trajan's victories in the Dacian Wars (101-106 AD), but it was also a great technological achievement requiring a great deal of site organization. The blocks making up the Column of Trajan are among the heaviest to have been lifted during the Roman Imperial period (the largest of which weighed as much as 77 tons). In this talk I look at the possible ways this could have been accomplished, some of the logistical problems of accomplishing such a feat, and how it fits into the Roman desire to demonstrate power through large scale construction projects. I will also touch on some of the problems involved in creating hypothetical reconstructions of ancient processes. More

This is not, however, the first time that this country has experienced extreme crisis, conflict, and polarization.

Dante's Divine Comedy is a world literature masterpiece that has come to be regarded as one of our greatest human treasures. It offers an almost encyclopedic presentation of classical and medieval ethics, philosophy, theology, politics, and some of the most imaginative, stirring and beautiful poetry ever written. It is an eschatological adventure as Dante takes us through the three transmundane kingdoms of Inferno, Purgatorio, and Paradiso. During this imaginary journey, the poet explores the weaknesses and strengths, the ugliness and beauty of human souls, of humankind. Readings: Dante, Divine Comedy (Allen Mandelbaum or Princeton Dante Project’s translations suggested, but not required) More
