VIRTUAL - SASA Mini Reading Group: Politics Past and Present: The (non)Differences

January 10, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 2:00 pm on Monday, repeating until January 24, 2022

This is an online event.

Previous participation and previous knowledge not required.

Reading will focus around the Historians Herodotus, Thucydides, Polybius, and Tacitus, with appearances from Plato, Aristotle, Cicero, and Seneca. Sessions will be structured roughly chronologically (5th century. Roman Republic, The Pricipate), examining change and continuity in political theory and analysis, considering the parallels with our own times.

Participants will receive an overview of the analytic approaches of ancient historians and political theorists to events and above all, the value of comparative study of the ancient world to illuminate just how relevant it really is for our lives, times, and therefore education.
