We will pursue questions of myth, material culture, archaeology, poetics, and art history in Ancient Greece, as they bear upon the question of the figuration and conceptualization of the feminine. Our key figures in this pursuit are Sappho, the great lyric poet of the ancient world and the inventor of the lyric; Medea, in Euripides' tragedy; and Medea and Cassandra, in Aeschylus’ play Agamemnon, foreign women who each in their own way represent potential projections of the cthonian Greek woman, liberated.

Students will gain an introduction to marine biology and animation through this exploration of optics and how the eyes of both humans and various sea creatures perceive the world around them. Lenses as physical, anatomical, and conceptual phenomena interact with light, the energy that enables and structures life on the planet. We will focus on ways that scientists enhance vision to observe organisms at different scales, and how artists represent the knowledge gleaned from those observations.
