Guilt In Vergil’S 'Aeneid' And Lucan’S 'Bellum Civile', Michelle Sugar 2018 The University of Western Ontario

Guilt In Vergil’S 'Aeneid' And Lucan’S 'Bellum Civile', Michelle Sugar

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

This study is a comparative analysis that focuses on the portrayal of guilt in Vergil’s Aeneid and Lucan’s Bellum Civile. I use Greek and Roman concepts of emotions and modern theories from psychology and psychoanalysis to argue that many of the emotions that seemingly pervade these poems, such as anger and despair, should be read as being partly related to a hero’s experience of guilt. I examine different types of guilt, namely legal and psychological guilt, to better understand how Vergil and Lucan use guilt to develop the emotional landscapes of their poems and how they represent ...

Rough Cilicia Archaeological Survey Project: Report Of The 2000 Season, Nicholas K. Rauh, Luann Wandsnider

Rough Cilicia Archaeological Survey Project, 1996-2011

During the 2000 season the RCASP Survey Team surveyed approximately five square kilometers in the vicinity of Lamos and along the ridges surrounding the Adanda River valley in interior Rough Cilicia. Geoarchaeological inspection of beach, lagoon, and terrace deposits of the Hacimusa River was conducted by F. Sancar Ozaner and Hülya Caner. Together Ozaner and Caner identified the locations where geomorphological trenches would be excavated during the 2001 season. Caner also collected surface sediments from lagoonal deposits of the Hacimusa and Bickici Rivers for further analysis. Under the direction of Michael Hoff and Rhys Townsend, a preliminary architectural map was ...

The team surveyed the entire southern coastal portion of our intended survey zone. The work occurred within a ...


La Ciudad Como Espacio De La Marginalidad: Un Acercamiento Crítico A Un Oso Rojo, Mariana Pensa 2018 UCLA Extension

La Ciudad Como Espacio De La Marginalidad: Un Acercamiento Crítico A Un Oso Rojo, Mariana Pensa

South East Coastal Conference on Languages & Literatures (SECCLL)

Nos proponemos realizar un análisis del film argentino Un oso rojo (2002, dirigido por Israel Adrián Caetano). Un punto de entrada para el análisis nos remite al concepto mismo de lo que es una ciudad, tal como Lewis Mumford lo expone en su canónico artículo “What is a city?”. Si la ciudad se constituye, al decir de Mumford, en espacio simbólico de “unidad colectiva”, en donde los hombres realizan sus actividades mas “útiles”, las preguntas a las que nos llevan estos conceptos serán ¿cuál es el estatuto de una ciudad recorrida por la violencia? ¿Cómo el espacio refiere y significa ...

Rough Cilicia Archaeological Survey Project: Report Of The 1996 Season, Nicholas K. Rauh 2018 Purdue University

Rough Cilicia Archaeological Survey Project: Report Of The 1996 Season, Nicholas K. Rauh

Rough Cilicia Archaeological Survey Project, 1996-2011

This is a report for the 1996 season of the Rough Cilicia Archaeological Survey Project. This intensive, systematic archaeological survey took place in the vicinity of "known" Cilician pirate bases and their hinterlands . These sites offer a unique opportunity to evaluate the material remains of a distinctly nontraditional "culture" of the Hellenistic world, a culture receiving little previous archaeological attention. Our intention is to complete a surface survey of the sustaining areas of the three main sites, Coracesium (Alanya), Selinus (Gazipasha), and Antioch ad Cragum (Güney), including the intervening coastal strips as well as the major ridges that connect the ...


Learning To Read In The Theaetetus: The Recuperation Of Writing In Plato's Philosophy, Luke Lea 2018 University of New Mexico

Learning To Read In The Theaetetus: The Recuperation Of Writing In Plato's Philosophy, Luke Lea

Foreign Languages & Literatures ETDs

In my thesis, I take up the popular question of the status of writing in Plato’s dialogues, but from a fresh perspective. Instead of approaching the question of writing head-on, I attend to the philosophical message about reading presented by two dialogues, the Phaedrus and the Theaetetus. My thesis offers interpretations of two individual dialogues whose emphasis on writing and reading as both literary themes and philosophical problems ensure that the overall meanings of these dialogues cannot be reached without attention to this subject.

Although I examine the dialogues in isolation, believing that the setting and characters unique to ...

Rough Cilicia Archaeological Survey Project: Report Of The 1999 Season, Nicholas K. Rauh, Luann Wandsnider

Rough Cilicia Archaeological Survey Project, 1996-2011

In 1999 the team turned attention to an area of mountainous rural hinterland behind Iotape and some 500 m above the valley of the Delice Çay and the village of Kahyalar.Employing coarse interval survey methodology we conducted a sweep of a network of ridges extending from a peak known locally as Nergis Tepesi to the village of Kahyalar below. When evidence of past human activity or disturbances was observed by the team, especially architectural remains or ceramics clusters of more than one sherd per square meter, the area became designated as a 'site', if only for purposes of recording ...

Rough Cilicia Archaeological Survey Project: Report Of The 1998 Season, Michael C. Hoff, Nicholas K. Rauh, Rhys F. Townsend, Luann Wandsnider

Rough Cilicia Archaeological Survey Project, 1996-2011

During the 1998 season the Rough Cilicia Survey team shifted the focus of our research to the discovery and analysis of rural sites and rural field tracks in the southern coastal portion of the survey zone (between ancient Selinus, modern Gazipasha, and ancient Nephelion (modern Muzkent). To learn more about historic landscape use in the area, the field team surveyed 21 transects comprising more than 17 linear kilometers of survey terrain. To record our finds we employed GPS tracking devices to track our progress on 1:5000 topographical maps acquired from the Tapu ve Kadastro Genel Müdürlügü (all sites are ...


Drama As Dream: Sophoclean Tragedy And The Cult Of Asclepius, Molly C. Mata 2018 University of New Mexico

Drama As Dream: Sophoclean Tragedy And The Cult Of Asclepius, Molly C. Mata

Foreign Languages & Literatures ETDs

This thesis explores tragic drama as a corresponding ritual to the incubation ritual in the cult of Asclepius and theorizes that this ritual is psychologically cathartic and healing. I argue that in Ajax and Philoctetes, Sophocles marks this cathartic ritual through nosological language, setting, and social context. In my first chapter, I explore Sophocles’ use of the language of madness (mania) and illness (nosos) in Ajax to show the exacerbation of the audience’s psychological state. Next, I show that catharsis is achieved through the negotiation and subsequent burial of Ajax. In my second chapter, I argue that Sophocles uses ...


Negotiation And The Construction Of Intimacy In The Letters Between Fronto And Marcus Aurelius, Sarah C. Keith 2018 University of New Mexico

Negotiation And The Construction Of Intimacy In The Letters Between Fronto And Marcus Aurelius, Sarah C. Keith

Foreign Languages & Literatures ETDs

This project analyzes the letters between Marcus Cornelius Fronto and his student Marcus Aurelius as works of literature, rather than merely sites for historical mining. The letters, I argue, contain carefully constructed tropes of rhetoric and feature intentional polish that serve as opportunities for discussion about the virtues of philosophy and rhetoric during the Second Sophistic. Topics of discussions between both parties range between the imagery of sleep, and intimate spaces, like bedrooms, to substantive allusions to Plato’s philosophy and his dialogue Phaedrus. By looking beyond the identification of concrete names and dates to the literary, referential, and personal ...


Οἴμοι Τάλας: A Modern[Ist] Translation Of Aristophanes’ Acharnians, Jake Sawyer 2018 Macalester College

Οἴμοι Τάλας: A Modern[Ist] Translation Of Aristophanes’ Acharnians, Jake Sawyer

Classics Honors Projects

Adapting ancient works of art for a modern audience provides a challenge that authors often approach with a methodology of familiarization and normalization. Meanwhile, the public consciousness idealizes ancient Athens as a golden age of rationality and classic perfection. This translation of Aristophanes’ Acharnians seeks to challenge both of these notions by combining distinctly foreignizing language and Modernist theater practices that challenge the audience to interact with the action of the drama more directly. Aristophanes’ comedy is especially suited to this venture in the ways it criticizes Athenian society and deploys metatheatrical devices also prominent in many twentieth-century plays and ...


Occupying And Transcending A Provincial See: The Career Of Euthymios Malakes, Hannah Ewing 2018 Rollins College

Occupying And Transcending A Provincial See: The Career Of Euthymios Malakes, Hannah Ewing

Faculty Publications

Despite a distinguished reputation as an orator and bishop in his own time, comparatively little scholarship focuses upon Euthymios Malakes, metropolitan of Neopatras during the later twelfth century. Using his extant works and contemporary sources, this article reconstructs elements of Malakes’ career in both Constantinople and Hellas. He was active in each, balancing his intellectual credentials, participation in synods, and elite connections to the capital, with immersion in more local contests. This combination allowed him to expand his pursuits and reputation beyond his minor see, in the capital and also in the province of his see.


Equestrian Hunter-Gatherers And The Animal Trade Of The Western Great Plains And Adjacent Rocky Mountains, 1800–1860, Cody Newton 2018 University of Colorado at Boulder

Equestrian Hunter-Gatherers And The Animal Trade Of The Western Great Plains And Adjacent Rocky Mountains, 1800–1860, Cody Newton

Anthropology Graduate Theses & Dissertations

This study uses data from historical accounts, paleoclimatic records, and the archaeological record to understand how equestrian hunter-gatherer groups of the western Great Plains and adjacent Rocky Mountain regions influenced and participated in the Fur Trade economy of these regions. The manner Euroamerican trappers and traders of the early to mid-nineteenth century depended on Native groups is analyzed using these datasets in a new synthesis of this intricate relationship. The narrative that emerges shows how game animal provisioning of trappers and traders, particularly at permanent trading post locations, was an important aspect of the fur trade and a key to ...


Entanglements Of Urban Art In Oaxaca Mexico, William Bishop Lammons 2018 University of Colorado at Boulder

Entanglements Of Urban Art In Oaxaca Mexico, William Bishop Lammons

Anthropology Graduate Theses & Dissertations

In this thesis, I examine the urban art of Oaxaca, Mexico, specifically that of graffiti and street art. I focus on the ways that urban art genres entangle with one another and with hegemonic centers of power. Focusing on the areas of identity, class, taste, politics, protest, and commercialism, I argue that entanglements reflect and speak to the complex realities in which these expressive forms situate themselves.
