ANTH 340 - Myths and Peoples of the Ancient Near East

(3 credits)
Prerequisite: ANTH 100 or ANTH 110 or ANTH 111 or ANTH 307 or consent of instructor
This course will explore the dimensions of myth as they relate to the cultural life of the peoples of the Ancient Near East: the Egyptians, the Sumerians, the Babylonians and Assyrians, the Hittites, the Phoenicians and the Hebrews. Emphasis will be placed on understanding the context out of which the myths arose, and the ways in which they both described and conditioned the cultural realities to which they related. Offered every other year. (CGCL; CSOC; CWRT)
