This course, making extensive use of resources available via the internet, focuses on the work of the Athenian comic playwrights.
Students will participate in a weekly webcast lecture, an on-line discussion moderated by faculty members from institutions that
participate in Sunoikisis (www.sunoikisis.org), and weekly tutorials with faculty members at Rhodes. This course is specifically designed
for advanced students and will include a rigorous study of the cultural and historical context during the 5th and 4th centuries BCE.
Students will also become familiar with the current interpretative approaches to the material.
