HIST 371: History Seminar
Inventing History: Herodotus and the Beginnings of Historical Writing.
Due to a scheduling conflict, the seminar will not be able to meet on Tuesdays during the first half of the term; so, we will begin on Thursday, Jan. 18, 2:20-4:00. See you then!
The course syllabus is posted on my Web page. Visit the following URL: http://home.moravian.edu/users/hist/medgg01/Hdt.htm (On the College home page, click "Academics," then "Faculty Websites.") This note is also posted there; no need to write anything down now.
As you will see, your first assignment is to read Book 1 of Herodotus and Book 1 of Homer's Iliad. If you own a copy of Homer, dust it off; any translation is fine for our purposes. If you don't own a copy, you may access Book 1 of the Iliad on the Web (link provided on syllabus) or get it from Reeves.
