Ancient Mediterranean

Classical period columns at the Amman Citadel, JordanBeginning in autumn 2018, I will take over teaching the "Ancient Mediterranean" (Hist 261) course at Calvin College. This is a long-standing Calvin course for students of History and Classics, and engages students in the study of the political, social, cultural, and economic developments of the ancient Mediterranean world from the late Bronze Age to the beginning of Late Antiquity. My teaching on this course builds upon Calvin's extensive background teaching in this area, as well as my own years of experience teaching similar first-year Introduction to the Roman World and Introduction to the Ancient World courses at Canterbury Christ Church University.

Textbooks and the course syllabus are still under development, but I look forward to sharing more details about this course in the coming months and, particularly, to sharing how the first semester goes.
