Download Syllabus

The course examines the discursive relation between past and present and the implications in social formation and identification. Through examples from Mesopotamia, Egypt, Rome and Greece the course looks at how scholars study religion in the ancient world and complicates the tools they use while reconsidering how scholars study the past in general. Related to these issues, students will be expected to find and present examples also from their own research area.

500-level independent study courses are also available, in consultation with your supervisor.
