The purpose of this course is to instruct students in the basics of reading a ‘literary’ source with the eye of a historian-in-training. We will focus on reading ed passages from Isocrates, a Greek orator who lived in Athens in the fourth century BC through a considerable portion of its democracy.

The course will be formed around three main topics: citizenship and the state civic education and presentation and praise of oneself and others.

Since rhetorical presentation and oral contest formed the backbone to Athenian society, our leitmotiv of inquiry will be the entanglement and disentanglement of ‘historical truth’ and political culture, themes that remain central to modern politics.

Please note that this course will be conducted in English, which remains useful for communicating research on the ancient world internationally.

Students will therefore receive a short instruction on how to write academic work in English for topics in Ancient History with correct style formatting and reference methods.

Written work will also be accepted in German for those that remain uncertain, but presentations (Referat) must be conducted in English.
