CLS 215 Greek and Roman Historians (3) MPT

Introduces students to the works of ancient historians, including Herodotus, Thucydides, Livy and Tacitus. Reading the original historians of Greece and Rome as opposed to modern histories will allow students to engage ancient notions of history, historical writing, and the literary efforts that created the histories; students will learn to read history critically, aware of the perspectives and political and social context of the historian and the effect those have on the final work.
