ARCA3602 - Greece and the East

Semester 2, 2011  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Margaret Christina Miller


Greek interaction with the older civilisations to the East (Anatolia, Near and Middle East, and Egypt) created a vital cultural dynamic throughout antiquity, not just in the seventh-century BC "orientalising" period. Areas of focus include the impact of relations with the East on the development of Greek material culture in specific periods, with reference to the areas of conceptual difficulty: the definition of cultural receptivity, the articulation of the "sources", the means of communication and types of reception.
