AAMW534 - PROBLEMS GREK/RMN HIST

For a long time, the Hellenistic period has been regarded as the domain of specialists in certain fields and regions only. However, the period between the late fourth and the mid of the first century BC has come into the focus of modern scholarship again in recent years, and new approaches to the period as such, its general features as well as the differences between various empires and regions have become the subject of vivid discussions and new trends in scholarship. This course is meant to provide an overview of the history of scholarship and seminal and current debates in the field of Hellenistic history. Over the course of the semester, we will discuss several problems in Hellenistic history, influential and recent trends in historical research, and approaches to important single historical events as well as broader topics and structures.
