This course is a research seminar for students who want to write a thesis on any topic in ancient Greek and Roman history. From the start, the course is designed to accommodate students as much as possible in terms of research and writing. We shall meet as a group to present and discuss each other’s work with positive criticism regularly (6 times); or to introduce new research and writing strategies, as the students’ need requires. But most of the time students will spend on independent research and writing, but again in one-on-one consultation with the instructor. You will work closely with the instructor to choose and develop your research topic, and to discuss your progress every step along the way. This course will be most rewarding for those with an inquisitive mind who enjoy formulating their own questions and answers to historical problems.
