ARCA2624 - The Ancient Greek Body

Semester 2, 2012  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Alastair John Lacy Blanshard

Description

Reference to the ancient Greek body conjures up images of rippling nude male musculature. But, just as today, the ancient Greek body was a conceptually mutable phenomenon, moulded by the forces of gender, age, ethnicity and socio-economic status. This Unit explores the many manifestations of the ancient Greek body via a consideration of the archaeological, art historical and literary evidence pertaining to oppositional social groups, such as male-female, young-old, slave-free, Greek-non Greek, and rich-poor.
