Seminars on Classical Greece to get the mind thinking
Two seminars for students and scholars on the classical world are being offered by the Department of Archaeology on 7 and 21 August
Anyone curious as to why Greeks were fascinated to built temples or want to know the secrets of Corinth?
Two seminars for students and scholars on the classical world are being offered by the Department of Archaeology on 7 and 21 August.
The first entitled "Why did Early Greeks Build Temples?" will look at the ways in which temples changed their purpose over the years.
The seminar will draw on extensive new discoveries and studies over the past decade to explore how and why the notion of a temple widely emerged. It will feature examples predominantly from the Corinthian Gulf.
The second entitled "Pindar and Corinth" will look at why the famous and wealthy city of Corinth doesn't have much to show for itself in terms of archeological findings.
The seminar will study Pindar's ode to a Corinthian victor (Olympian 13) as a way to uncover the city's daily life, the role of elite families and the attitudes towards public displays of wealth.
For those interested, the seminars will be in the CCANESA Lecture Theatre, Madsen Building, Eastern Avenue, University of Sydney. The first lecture is on Tuesday 7 August at 3.00pm and the second will be Tuesday 21 August at 3.00pm. Drinks are provided and the seminars are free and no bookings are required.
