Additional Course Details: 

Travel is a fundamental aspect of the human experience. Science and History show us that practically as long as there have been humans, they have been wandering around the planet. Even when not physically travelling, we invent tales of travel and adventure to entertain ourselves at home. Origin stories of peoples and nations, like Rome (Aeneas coming from Troy) or the United States (Pilgrims and Plymouth Rock), often begin with a tale of travel and migration. As a locus of intensive travel from an early on, this course will explore the human experience of travel using materials originating from or generally associated with the pre-modern Mediterranean Basin. Students will investigate maps, pilgrimage accounts, tales, letters, chronicles and more to understand what has compelled people to undertake the often perilous and uncomfortable road and analyze how travelers presented their journeys and the others they encountered. Moreover, they will consider the role of travel in cultural contact, communication, exchange, and the generation and spread of knowledge.
