This course will focus on selected plays written by Aeschylus, the earliest tragedies to survive in European literature. Aeschylus preferred to write plays that were thematically connected, such as The Oresteia, which deals with the homecoming of Agamemnon from the Trojan War. He also wrote Persians, a history play which deals with the Persian Wars, in which Aeschylus himself fought as a general; and he wrote plays such as the Seven Against Thebes and Prometheus that explore the complex families of Greek heroes and the relationship between gods and humans. Most fascinating is the way in which Aeschylus frames his plays from a perspective that acknowledges the heroic-mythic past while at the same time anticipating the possibilities inherent in the new progressive democracy at Athens. Books: We will read the translations of Aeschylus published by the University of Chicago: Aeschylus I: The Persians, The Seven Against Thebes, The Suppliant Maidens, Prometheus Bound, and Aeschylus II: Oresteia, both volumes edited and translated by David Grene, Richmond Lattimore, Mark Griffith, and Glenn W.

Why are the Jews so funny? What is unique about Jewish humor? Why are so many comedians, satirical novelists, and film directors Jewish? In this short course, we will seek to answer these questions by tracing the history of Jewish humor from the nineteenth century to the present, following the migration of Jewish humor across the European continent to America (and Israel), where the Jewish funnyman and funnywoman have transformed the cultural landscape. We will also look at how the Jews have used laughter as both a coping mechanism and an instrument of self-defense against pogroms, forced migrations, and even the Holocaust. More

In the final years of the suffrage struggle, Ohio women’s efforts to gain the vote took place within a national movement that accepted the regional disenfranchisement of African Americans as part of a bargain to overcome Southern resistance. Yet in Ohio, the opposition from organized liquor interests brought black and white suffragists together. The story of these complex relationships helps us think about how race, region, and special interests shape alliances and access to the vote. More

The modern-day landscape of Sudan, ancient Nubia, is dotted with temples and pyramids – remnants of great kingdoms that flourished in the 1st millennium BC. One of these, the Kingdom of Kush, rose to particular prominence as some of its kings ruled over Ancient Egypt as pharaohs of the 25th Dynasty. Largely neglected in the history books, this talk will delve into the stories of early explorers to Nubia and highlight how ongoing fieldwork at Nuri is changing our perception of this part of the ancient world.

When it arrived on Broadway in 2015, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton: An American Musical was an instant success, selling out months in advance. With a national tour to follow, the show quickly captured the imaginations of history buffs and theater aficionados across the country. Even so, Hamilton has faced criticism for the liberties it takes with history. The musical follows the life of founding father Alexander Hamilton, the first secretary of the Treasury, but with its diverse cast and hip hop inspired songs, Miranda has described Hamilton as “a story about America then, told by America now.” With a film version of the musical set for release in July 2020 that will make the musical more accessible than ever, this course offers participants a chance to explore Hamilton’s success and the questions it has raised about America’s past, present, and future.


Required Texts:

Hamilton: An American Musical Original Cast Recording (available for purchase on CD, free through YouTube, or with a subscription to Spotify, Apple Music, or Amazon Music)

Historians on Hamilton: How a Blockbuster Musical is Restaging America’s Past, ed. Renee C. Romano and Claire Bond Potter, Rutgers University Press, 2018 (ISBN 978-0813590295 available in paperback or as Kindle edition for $15-25)
