CLAS 2530 - Alexander the Great and the Hellenistic World


Focuses first on Alexander himself, a man who became a myth even before his death. Next examines the Hellenistic world, the world that Alexander created out of his conquests. Alexander’s conquests helped spread Greek civilization over the whole of the eastern Mediterranean. Many of the issues that people living in this world confronted are still relevant today: the nature of celebrity, for Alexander was arguably the first celebrity; the challenges of emigration, of living in a society that was culturally and ethnically diverse, of assimilating a foreign culture, and living under an autocracy.
