New! Persuasion: A Course in Ancient Literature for Adults

June 9 – July 14, Tuesdays, 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. EST

Ages: 18+

Dr. Seth Holm will be donating the proceeds of this online class to the Raider Resilience Fund, in support of current Hun families who have experienced immediate financial hardship related to COVID-19. 

Since the beginning of Western culture, the ability to argue persuasively has been revered, celebrated, suspected, and declaimed. This course focuses on the phenomenon of rhetorical persuasion and its checkered reception. With brief samples of theoretical texts as our guide (a touch of Plato, Aristotle), we will explore this theme in some major authors of classical literature (The epic poet, Homer; the Athenian dramatists, Sophocles, Euripides, and Aristophanes; the Roman poet Vergil, and perhaps others). These authors reveal a culture much like our own that dually appreciates rhetoric's power and political utility along with its danger and potential abuses. Our readings will invite comparison with many modern issues which we will discuss alongside this ancient material. (All readings will be in English translation--no knowledge of Latin or Greek required!)

Zoom capabilities are required to participate. International students, with English fluency, are welcome!

Cost: $250
