This course focuses on analyzing and understanding Classical epic poetry, the ancient presentation of heroic figures and heroic exploits, and recognizing the influence of epic/heroic literature on the modern storytelling device of film. While the genre of epic is central to the course, other genres (both literary and cinematic) which present heroic figures, e.g., tragedy, history, comedy, action, fantasy, will also be explored. Analyzing the works read or viewed via writing and class discussion will constitute the primary course activities; students will engage in reading, viewing and writing outside of class, while class time will include some writing, viewing and discussion. In order to allow ample time for discussion and analysis, the majority of films in their entirety will be viewed outside of class. The course grade will be based substantially on written analysis (i.e., essays, papers) of the texts and films studied. The writing load for this course is a minimum of 15 pages of formal revised writing. This course satisfies the Writing Across the Curriculum Writing Intensive requirement.

Topics in Philosophical and Scientific Latin. Work in this course explores Latin literature in the field of "natural history," from its origins in Greek philosophy through the medieval period to the flowering of modern science, and will introduce students to “classic” texts in the history of Science, in their original language. Students will develop their Latin skills and increase their mastery of the language through the basic tools of reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Readings will include elements of post-classical Latin that may be called “medieval,” and to show the wide range of styles that “medieval” Latin attained, especially in technical or didactic writings. Prerequisite: LATN 212 or instructor permission.
