This course focuses on a single historical figure, Alexander the Great, using him as a point of departure for exploring a wide range of problems and approaches that typify the field of Classical Studies. How knowledge of Alexander has been used (and abused) provides a fascinating case study in the formation and continuous reinterpretation of the western Classical tradition.
