ANHS3608 - The Peloponnesian War and Culture

Semester 1, 2012  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Alastair John Lacy Blanshard

Description

The Peloponnesian War dominates the Greek world in the second half of the fifth century BC. At the same time, throughout this period, we see art and culture flourish as never before. This unit of study aims to trace these two features and examine the relationship between them. It looks at the stimulus war provides to culture, and the way culture responds to war's anxieties. It also examines the position that the Peloponnesian War has occupied in western European thought.
