Ancient History and Classics teachers ‘Catch Up’
The staff of the Departments of Archaeology and Classics &Ancient History at the University of Sydney will host a â€˜catch upâ€™ event for all Ancient History and Classical studies teachers on 25 March.
Following staff arrivals and retirements, course alteration and introduction and the emergence of new opportunities for professionals, the function is a chance to get acquainted (or reacquainted) and reconnect.
The event helps Departments of Archaeology and Classics &Ancient History staff explore new ways of helping teachers in the future and gather direct feedback.
The Nicholson Museum is open until 5pm on the night for those wishing to call in before the party. Professor Antonio Sagona will give a lecture in the space from 6:30pm.
The Ancient World Studies program allows students to pursue broad interdisciplinary studies in the ancient world at postgraduate level, drawing on disciplines including Ancient History, Museum Studies, Archaeology and Hebrew.
One subject offered under Ancient World Studies at the University of Sydney is ARCA6901 The Western Greeks. The online unit explores the Ancient Greekâ€™s activity and effect in the Mediterranean between 800 and 300 BC.
Alternatively, ANHS6903 A Tale of Three Cities compares three imperial cities and their deeds, words and art. The scope of these subjects alone demonstrates the Facultyâ€™s diversity and why a â€˜catch upâ€™ is the perfect idea.
The â€˜catch upâ€™ is the joint venture of the Departments of Archaeology and Classics and Ancient History in the School of Philosophical and Historical Inquiry.
